    Offroad in Peterborough

    Tried including some offroad riding on my ride from the Old Keene Rd (just east of Peterborough) north to Lakefield.

    On the former CN then CPR industrial trackage:

    You're dating yourself. From the early 60s to 5 years ago I was back & forth between Oshawa & Apsley. I don't ever recall any rail traffic to Lakefield.

    I've seen rail traffic through there to mid 80's. Not dating myself that much.
