On June 12 and 13 this summer, there was exciting news from Simcoe County (the very heart of butter tart country) that the Butter Tart Festival Cycling Tour had attracted cyclists from across Ontario. This festival serves cyclists butter tarts from 15 businesses along the North Simcoe trail that runs through the communities of Lafontaine, Perkinsfield, Penetanguishene, Midland, Victoria Harbour, Port McNicoll and Waubaushene.

Of course, Ontario has other butter tart festivals that cater to hungry cyclists. In fact, the By George Journal has featured a few:
At By George, we have always been partial to cycling the Ottawa Valley Rail Trail to visit both the bakeries in Almonte and Pakenham.
Here is an important update for the summer of 2021.
Rumour had it that when the General Store in Pakenham changed ownership recently that you could no longer get baked goods in the store. Not true!
The General Store is still a must-stop in Pakenham. It still has all the favourite bakery goods: pies, cookies, the infamous Pakenham Sticky Buns -– and butter tarts!
Seriously, what could possibly be a better combination? Cycling, Butter tarts.
By George has declared July as “Butter Tart Month.” Here is a menu of our delectable articles on Canada’s iconic dessert.
