Many local riders head out to the Carp area for their weekend workout, and with good reason. There are plenty of roads with light traffic, and with the surface in good condition.

The village of Carp itself has a number of points of interest, ranging from the Cold War-era “Diefenbunker” — now a museum with multiple activities all year round — to various cafes and restaurants.

At the mid-point, the Herb Garden will be a point of interest for some. But getting there requires 5 km of rough road, and then 5 more in modestly heavy traffic. It’s a shame, because the tour is fairly tranquil otherwise. Still, I found the drivers respectful and cautious. Nothing an experienced road rider won’t have seen before.

The second half of the ride is the quietest and prettiest, and there is the reward of Alice’s Village Café, among others waiting for you. Kin Vineyards is just outside the village of Carp. They are only recently opened, and have started to offer various tours and activities. It's worth looking up when planning this ride.
