Parry Sound is a great stop-over for bikers

I'm always surprised when we get enquires asking if we will take bookings from people arriving on a motorcycle...but after hearing their stories about some of their "welcomes" at other B&Bs, I can understand their concerns.
The Parry Sound area is a great place to explore on your bike - most of the roads are paved and very scenic. However, I also realize that most bikers want to cover as much ground as they possibly can, so here are a couple of great web sites to help you plan your trip:
Visit Georgian Bay has created a 7-day touring route around the entire bay, including places to stay, eat and visit
MotoWhere? which has a collection of rides posted by people who have actually traversed the route they describe
For the non-motorized bikers there are over 225 kms of major on-road cycling routes in the West Parry Sound Area.
Get routes along the highways (all paved and meet the Level of Service grade ‘C’ or better, which means that they are safe and comfortable for adult cyclists). Please note - some of my guests have found all the hills in the area difficult to navigate.
Here at 40 Bay Street Bed & Breakfast we offer all bikers off-road parking, or storage for non-motorized bikes, a wash station, cloths to dry off the dew in the morning, as well as all the Windex and paper towel they need to be able to clean all those squashed bugs off their windscreens and helmet visors!
So, if you're thinking of coming to the Parry Sound area by bike, not to worry! You will definitely be greeted with open arms!
P.S. It was a guest who gave me my very first ride on a motorcycle - I can understand how addictive it can be!
