WindsorEats has been named the best bike friendly business in Ontario’s Southwest.

As part of the 2023 Cycle Tourism Conference hosted by Ontario by Bike in Toronto, Ontario, earlier this month, WindsorEats has named the Best Bike Business for the southwestern portion of the province. The area covers roughly everything from Simcoe, Ontario, and south.

The 5th annual awards were presented at the conference for each of Ontario’s 13 tourism regions. The Best Bike Business award encompasses bike stores, rentals or bike tour operators.

It is such an honour to be recognized for the work we’re doing showcasing cycling and Windsor-Essex as a whole.

Friday Night Lights Season Begins May 5

With warm weather fast approaching, we invite you to join in on the fun by joining us for our weekly Friday Night Lights bike rides which start on May 5 for the 2023 season (tickets are now available).

The concept of the ride is quite simple. Imagine hundreds of colourfully lit bicycles rolling by, bells clacking, as they partake in visiting local businesses while rolling through neighbourhoods on two wheels. The pack take up the entire street, sometimes stretching several city blocks at a time.

Friday Night Lights is a colourful, nighttime "pub crawl" on bike in Windsor, Ontario.

The ride takes place every Friday from the start of May into October and has riders are constantly trying to outdo each other with their decorations on each ride. If you pay close enough attention, you may catch a glimpse of the couple on a tandem bike with custom built chandelier installed hanging over them as they ride.
