“The bicycle is a curious vehicle. Its passenger is its engine.”
- John Howard -
We loved the amazing trails in the lovely city of Belleville so much so that we threw our bikes into the car two weeks after our initial visit and returned for another cycling adventure. This time we biked Zwicks Trail and Kiwanis Bayshore Trail, both of which run along the beautiful Bay of Quinte; a long, narrow bay shaped like the letter "Z" on the northern shore of Lake Ontario. As you bike, walk or jog along, you will encounter natural landscapes, sports fields, meditative rest stops, picturesque playgrounds, boat launches, picnic areas, and so much more.
Here are a few photos of our visit that day...
|In addition to being near the water, we were surrounded by greenery.|
|The dramatic clouds made for great photos.|
|The view was spectacular.|
|You just know we rode onto this.|
|The most amazing man in the world exploring. And posing for the camera.|
|Occasionally we strayed off the beaten path to explore abandoned buildings.|
|I'd never seen so any swans in one area as I saw that day.|
|I always get the feeling that swans know they're being photographed.|
|It threatened to rain the entire time we were there but we stuck it out.|
|There are many beautiful rest stops along the way.|
|Bay Bridge (Norris Whitney Bridge) connects Belleville to Prince Edward County over the Bay of Quinte.|
