Ride long. Ride hard. Smile.

PTBOrides.com is about inspiration. Whether a long-time rider in the Peterborough area, or a visiting cyclist, let our selection of rides inspire you to visit new places. Enjoy all that this great area has to offer - it just might be Ontario’s best kept secret (especially if you love riding gravel)

Come along for the ride.


In the Peterborough Cycling Routes section one can find enough routes that you can always choose one that will suit the day’s wind. A word to the wise; use days of unusual wind patterns (like a day that is blowing a gale from the east) to do a long one that you would not normally take on.

Pick a route, grab a map and go exploring


The Triple Crown Challenge features three grueling routes around our area. We hope to inspire riders to explore - explore the hills, valleys and towns around Peterborough on roads they may not have visited. Also to explore their own limits by riding farther than they have gone before.

Consider the Triple Crown an invitation to test yourself.
