KiteAddict's team of PASA-certified instructors teach adventurers to safely master both sea and sky with kiteboarding, which combines wakeboarding and paragliding. The instructors—who also hold certifications in CPR and first aid—educate students on weather theory, kite anatomy, and safety with hands-on training before setting them loose upon the gentle tides. They also teach stand-up paddleboarding lessons, in which students serenely skim across aquatic surfaces. Come winter, these adventurous instructors don't rest. When their beloved lakes freeze over, they help guests harness their kiteboarding theories and tactics to catch some air above snowy slopes during kitesnowboarding lessons. The knowledgeable sportsmen also curate and sell kiteboarding equipment from Slingshot, Liquid Force, and Ozone.
Tour de Green Belt weaves waves of participants through Rouge Park, a scenic stretch of Ontario's Greenbelt. Originally established as a fresh-air festival on wheels, the event has since amended its "Bikes Rule, Feet Drool" decree to include hikers and joggers, as well. Multiple cycling and running routes provide majestic views of the area's natural terrain, and designated stops along those routes encourage further exploration. At Bob Hunter Memorial Park, cyclists celebrate a Canadian environmental hero, and at a newly created wetland, racers can snag cups of water at rest stations or sip from marshy puddles just like the original marathon runners of old. Once across the finish line, participants gather to mingle and refuel on a freshly prepared lunch crafted from locally sourced foods.
