The Rideau Canal is equally impressive as the roads. Hand built by thousands of craftsmen, it allows pleasure boats to tour from lake to lake. Parking the bike at a lock to watch the feats of engineering at work is darn cool. The roads wind and twist their way around the Rideau making this the perfect route for a daytrip or overnighter. This is a relaxed ride that features small town charm, great restaurants and tons of view points of the canal in action. Get the full history of the canal here.
