Sat. July 29: Mixed Levels, Peterborough Excursion

Rotary Greenway Trail
In another of the NHCC’s out of town excursions we are meeting in Peterborough at Beavermede Park and heading out to explore new areas.

Levels 1 & 2: A super nice, scenic, flat and easy ride from Beavermede to Lakefield along the Peterborough Rotary Greenway Trail. The first half is paved so if you turn around at Trent University you’ll do 14km, all paved. Continue to Lakefield along crushed lime screening for a total of 40km round trip. The incentive to continue to Lakefield is the fabulous ice cream shop, so bring a little $$.

Levels 3 & 4: We’ll modify the route slightly so that everyone starts at Beavermede Park and travels the first 7k together on the paved Rotary trail. Choose either the Ptbo Route 1a – Lakes, Rivers and Cafes 45. Or, for 60km, we’ll follow the Route 1 – Lakes, Rivers and Cafes 60

Date: Saturday July 29

    I’m going to be there for the 40k ride. I can’t tell from the description, is it a paved route? Should I be taking my hybrid?

  5. Freda and Mike says:

    We’ll give the 60k a shot!

  6. Randy Albon says:

    Even the unpaved portion of the trail is fine on a road bike. The limestone is very hard packed. You can also ride on the road adjacent to the trail if you wish.
