Sheila, Ian, and I all have long weekend commitments which will preclude us leading a ride on Monday. If you are keen to get out and are wondering were to ride here are a couple of suggestions:
Peterborough airport – Head south from the Silver Bean along the trail through Crary Park and onto Lock street. Then follow the residential streets along the river until you cross under the Highway 7 bridge. Follow Johnson Drive and Beardsmore to Airport Road and then turn left. You can get breakfast or lunch at the airport restaurant. This is about 20 km. the road is a little rough but the traffic is reasonable.
Douro – This is a longer run but again traffic is reasonable on mostly paved (and some hard packed gravel).Ride the trail north to Trent and head east on Pioneer road. At the five corners you will have to get on the Warsaw Road (CR 4) for a short hop until you pick up the Douro road (CR 8) on the right. Return on the line south of Douro.
