“A city of bikepaths!”
Enjoy a 10km ride from Peterborough to Lakefield along the old CN line. Great scenic ride. The Lakefield Rotary Greenway railtrail is actually just a continuation of the paved Peterborough Greenway trail.

Love running along the trail and by and over the river. Great way to explore the Peterborough Waterfront areas on foot or with two wheels. Highly recommend taking it all the way up to the University.
