Throwback Thursday! E-skooting in Niagara-on-the-Lake

 
 

For Throwback Thursday, I want to tell you about an awesome day we had at Niagara-on-the-Lake.

We went to wine country in Ontario to celebrate my man's birthday in July. We love wine and Niagara-on-the-Lake is very close for us - only about 1.5 hours away from Toronto. There are 88 wineries in and around Niagara-on-the-Lake and we wanted to both explore the town and visit the wineries! We thought about renting bikes, but considering the hot weather (and my profound laziness), I found an amazing option ... 

Here I am, e-skooting away ...

Electric bikes!

We had such fun! We were given a great map and tutorial from the e-skoot people and we were off, first to some wineries, then to a nice park with a beautiful view of Ontario Lake to enjoy some sandwiches, wine (because wine-not??) and cookies for lunch. The area you can skoot is about 1 mile radius of the shop, which includes A LOT of wineries, shops, restaurants, and more. You can take these babies anyplace a regular bike can go, and you don't have to pedal. Talk about my kind of bike. We stopped at probably a dozen wineries that day (but before you ask, we shared most tastings and were not e-skooting drunk. I'll save the PSA) and had a merry time. Our dog Roxy was able to come with us as well - the bikes went up to about 20-25kph I think, so they really cooked right along. Roxy rode in a backpack and loved every minute.

 

Roxy is loving the breeze from the e-skoot!

 

We had a great day, e-skooting all over the area, tasting wine, and taking in the views, and enjoying each other's company. What a day!
