Sidewalks! This video mentioned general rules about riding on sidewalks. Peterborough has specific rules, which state that you are not allowed to ride a bicycle on sidewalks downtown. Children under 14 years of age can ride on the sidewalk outside of the downtown.
It is important to know the rules for the place you plan to ride.
Riding in Peterborough? Visit Peterborough.ca for information on Walking and Biking on Roads, Sidewalks, and Trails.
Peterborough has some bike lanes that help cyclist share the road with other road users. Knowing how to position yourself on a bike lane properly will help you be predictable to other road users.
