What we're about

This is a group for anyone who is interested in hiking, walking, cycling, kayaking/canoeing and possibly cross country skiing in the great outdoors within an hour’s drive from Peterborough. We started this group because we love the outdoors and the opportunity to meet new people. This is supposed to be a very inclusive group. All are welcome: young, old, families, single people, gay or straight, males and females. On your profile, please have a photo that accurately shows your face so we can recognize you and have some idea who you are. Also be considerate of our time--if you sign up for an event and find you can’t make it, please let us know at least 24 hours before if at all possible. Two no-shows or last minute cancellations in a row likely means we will take you out of the group. Likewise, if you don't come to any events for months, or your profile photo is false or misleading, your profile will also be removed from this group. We want members and attendees to feel as comfortable and safe as possible. Join us and have fun!

Cycle and picnic along beautiful Presqu'ile Provincial Park

Ontario Street Dock

11 am - Meet at the end of Ontario Street in the parking lot (see attached map). The park entrance is a two minute cycle away. Cyclists can enter the park with no fees and no need to register. Otherwise it is about an $18 daily fee.

We will cycle leisurely along the road, perhaps stopping to hike one or two of the brief walking trails after lunch (bikes are not allowed on the trails). When we find a suitable picnic table near the water, we will stop for lunch (There are some food trucks just outside the entrance to the park if that appeals also). Bob & I will bring collapsible chairs to sit near by. If you are okay sitting on the ground, bring a blanket to sit on. If the spirit moves, maybe you'd even want to go in for a swim.

NOTE: This is a long drive for most of us, so consider carpooling if you are comfortable with that. If you have room for an extra bike on your bike rack, please note this in the comments below. If we bring the trailer, we might have room for a couple of extra bikes.

- Please follow all usual COVID precautions. Bob & I have been vaccinated and hope you have too
- If you need to cancel, please do so by the night before if at all possible. Cancellations of less than 2 hours before the event or people who just forget about it will be considered 'no shows'.
- Bring water, lunch and sun block. And--please wear a helmet!

Be prepared for a wonderful day!!

P.S. - I might bring some sweet treats

P.S. - If you are getting a message on your MEETUP app saying "UNPAID"--ignore that. We never charge members!!
