Get your motor running. Head out on the highway. Look for adventure in Peterborough & the Kawarthas. We have some of the best-loved, well-known motorcycling routes in Ontario, only an hour or two east of Toronto.

Cruise the curves of Highway 507 north of Buckhorn. Follow the shore of Stoney Lake along Northey’s Bay Road. Twist and turn due north of Havelock and discover cottage country as you’ve never seen it before. Wind through farm country from Bailieboro to Keene.

These are some of our most scenic rides—all paved, of course—for motorcycle enthusiasts. Best of all, a lake is never far from view.

And it just keeps getting better. Compared to what you’re used to, there’s never much traffic here and as you ride further into Peterborough & the Kawarthas, you’re even further away from it all. You’ll have to remind yourself that it’s only half an hour back to the city of Peterborough. No wonder a cruise through the Kawarthas has been consistently named one of the top rides in all of Ontario.

Around the next curve is bound to be something of interest: a bakery; a scenic lookout; a roadhouse with a patio to park your bike; great places to stay along the way. For motorcyclists in Peterborough & the Kawarthas, it’s never about getting from Point A to Point B. It’s all about the ride.
