To Establish Reliable Relations with Communities Local Community Activities

On February 4th 2016, representatives from Peterborough & the Kawarthas Tourism (PKT), Shimano Canada and Wild Rock Outfitters were in Toronto to accept the Economic Developers Council of Ontario (EDCO) award for Public- Private Partnership. The award recognizes PKT's partnership with Shimano Canada for the development of the area's first official road cycling routes, the Peterborough & the Kawarthas Classics.

The new cycling routes were launched in the spring of 2015 when PKT unveiled close to 300kms of road cycling routes starting and ending in downtown Peterborough, encouraging riders to get off the beaten path using 3 double-loop road routes throughout the County.
