The County of Peterborough, The City of Peterborough, Peterborough and the Kawarthas Tourism and Shimano Canada, partnered to create the area's first official road cycling routes. The Peterborough and the Kawarthas Classics are a series of three double-loop road cycling routes.


Through extensive collaboration with avid local road cyclists, nearly 300 kms of scenic rural roads encompassing the three most dynamic and popular routes throughout Peterborough County now include approximately 160 way-finding signs which take riders off of the beaten path, encouraging visitation to businesses throughout the region.


A Metre Matters!

When passing cyclists on Ontario roads, it's the law to leave at least 1 meter of space between the cyclist and the motorist.  Watch our Safe Cycling video.
