Tour d’Epicure is an intimate one-day cycling and epicurean adventure for the connoisseur of food, wine and cycling! Discover the scenic cycling routes and unmatched food and wine delights of the Niagara Peninsula. Every road is a joy to pedal, from the striking Niagara escarpment to the sun-kissed vineyard paths. We'll eat well, drink even better, and savor all of the rich flavors that have made this area of the world famous.

Get ready to enjoy a day filled with many of the finer things in life... friends, wine, food, cycling and of course, an important cause.

We ride for Campfire Circle (formerly Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium) to bring healing through happiness to kids and families affected by childhood cancer.

Through the generosity of passion of riders and generosity of donors, Tour d'Epicure has helped to fund a ropes course at Campfire Circle Rainbow Lake, supported the 'Body Shop' where Camper receive medical care while at camp and more. 

And this year, we have an important mission to raise funds to help enhance Campfire Circle Rainbow Lake's waterfront accessibility to ensure every Camper has the same experience.

Many of oncology Campers arrive at Campfire Circle Rainbow Lake with mobility devices. Campers’ cancer and cancer treatment cause mobility challenges and limitations, which can be temporary or permanent.

The vast majority of programs at Campfire Circle Rainbow Lake take place outdoors and waterfront activities are crucial to the camp experience, including fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and sailing. However, Campers are experiencing accessibility barriers along the waterfront that limit their independence and require them to depend on parent/caregiver or volunteer support for participation.

We are on a mission to raise $100,000 over the next two years to help build an accessible canoe/kayak dock with an E-Z Launch system that enables wheelchair users to move autonomously from a wheelchair into a canoe or kayak.

The canoe/kayak dock rebuild is a critical priority to enhance the waterfront accessibility at Campfire Circle Rainbow Lake. Tour d’Epicure riders’ support will have a lasting and important impact in the Camper experience.
