Trip Details Back by popular demand. Bring your bicycle, your kayak and some food to share, the catch is that the food must start with the letter P. In the morning we will pedal on a portion of the paved Niagara circle route after a ferry ride across the Welland canal. Potluck lunch at our house (Covid willing). Then a paddle in the lazy Welland river. If it's a hot day, as a special treat we can play in the splashpad!
