Everything on this Skills & Sights Getaway is geared towards helping you and your loved one learn how to ride gravel with confidence. We’ll ride 55-75 km per day at an average speed of 18-22 km/h, with tips to improve your bike handling, power output and endurance. Along the way, you’ll be treated to some of the best views of the surrounding landscape and a few tasty treats from local vendors. Our rides start and finish at the cozy Breadalbane Inn.

Escape with your sweetheart!

Join a Gravelocity Couples Getaway and add a little romance to your passion for gravel riding. After all, there’s nothing better than sharing something you love with someone you love. Of course, if that someone is a sibling or a friend, that’s fine too - as long as the two of you don’t mind sharing a bed!

Priced for two cyclists only. 

Fall in love with Elora-Fergus

Elora-Fergus is a little more than an hour’s drive from Toronto, but cycling here is like entering a completely different world. A single ride can pass through farmland, marshes, forests and riversides, rolling over every surface your gravel bike was made for. There are five different rail trails within easy reach.

That makes this the perfect area to build your gravel cycling skills. Routes here include: a sweet mix of gravel and asphalt that takes us down to Rockwood for coffee and treats on the banks of the Eramosa River; rolling hills and rail trails that lead around Lake Belwood; and a dandy combination of  gravel roads and forest tracks, before we pass through the old covered "kissing bridge" en route to Elmira.

After the ride, stroll the quaint shops and cafes of Fergus and Elora - or float down the Elora Gorge on an innertube. Then, relax with a beer and dinner on the patio at the Breadalbane Inn, before settling into your room for a great night's sleep.

Please Note: All rooms at the Breadalbane feature just one bed - making it best for singles, couples or very close friends!


Where you'll be staying

A stay at the Breadalbane Inn is about the closest thing you’ll find to British pub-style accommodation in Canada. With only 11 guest suites, Gravelocity’s guests will pretty much take over the whole place on any visit. The Inn itself is one of the finest examples of Scottish architecture in the area, featuring two award-winning restaurants, a charming patio that looks out onto the main street of Fergus, and a lovely solarium where you’ll enjoy breakfast while looking out at the surrounding garden.

The guest suites are divided between two buildings, with seven located one flight up from the restaurants and four suites in the coach house just steps across the parking lot. No two suites are alike. Each offers its own character and most feature exposed brick. 

What's Included

  • 2 Days of guided rides on curated routes
  • 1 Night at the Breadalbane Inn
  • Mid-ride bakery or lunch stops
  • Team Dinner Saturday
  • Breakfast Sunday
  • 2 Gravelocity Cycling Jerseys  (sizing chart)

    You will receive your product(s) on the first day of the tour, and we’ll have spare sizes available on site for a quick and easy exchange if necessary.

Please Note: Gravelocity’s rides run rain or shine. That said, we reserve the right to alter routes, distances or start times to avoid the worst of what Mother Nature (or the local gravel graders) may throw at us. On the rare occasion that a day’s bike ride is cancelled altogether, we’ll welcome you back on any other day - at any location - to make up for it.
