We did this ride a few weeks ago with levels 3 and 4 and this Tuesday we’ll ride alongside the Ganaraska Freewheelers who are also doing this route. There are options for everyone Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4, all starting in Peterborough at Beavermede Park. Anita will lead combined levels 1 and 2 along the out-and back route. Levels 3 and 4 will self-lead.
Levels 1 & 2: No route map is necessary since you’ll have a ride leader! 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 or turn around at any point to make it whatever distance you want since it’s all out and back. The incentive to continue to Lakefield is the fabulous ice cream shop, so bring a little $$. Ride leader: Anita Macklin
Levels 3 & 4: You will self-lead and choose either a distance of 50km or 65km. There are detailed route maps on Ride With GPS here and there will be others from both clubs to ride with (route maps will be available here soon):
