      That goes without saying, but since you asked…

      “[Biking] is my preferred method of transportation to get around Thunder Bay. In the past six years or so, there has been tremendous progress in terms of building bike infrastructure and drivers also seem to be getting used to sharing the road with cyclists. We have a few bikes we could lend out if anyone would be interested in biking around, otherwise you could see if any of the local bike shops (Fresh Air Experience, Petrie’s Cycle & Sports, and Rollin’ Thunder) have rentals available.” Note: For anyone interested in renting a bike, I would suggest calling ahead of time to see if there is anything available.

      Happy cycling!
