Route 3 – Hills, Views and Pastries 80

The Name Says It All.

This route hits all the best views in southern Peterborough County. The rolling hills along the ride offer challenging climbs and rewarding views in every direction. Freshly made pastries are a tasty way to recharge and are accessible at several locations along this ride. From Peterborough, this route heads south to Bailieboro giving riders spectacular views of Rice Lake along the way.  From Bailieboro riders will encounter plenty of rolling hills and views along the way to Millbrook, which is another great place to stop for a nibble.
