Great Southwest Ramble
This route connects the flatlands of Chatham-Kent and Lambton, the rolling hills of Oxford and Perth with many of Elgin and Middlesex’s best roads. Although the mapped route starts in Ingersoll it could be started in St Thomas, St Marys or any of the other smaller towns and villages that dot the route. Although the route takes you to from Lake Huron to the Erie shore many of the real gems can be found in the quiet valley roads of the Thames, Ausable and Sydenham Rivers or the creeks along the Erie Shore.

All the shortcuts, more or less follows the route of the Great Southwest Ramble, but cuts off some of the extras along the way. The route still connects both Great Lakes for the rider to enjoy.
