Experience Level: Easy to moderate, recreational ride

Route Surface: Paved, except for trail in Tillsonburg and 3.5 km on Airport Road

Length: 17km

Route Description: 

Take trails and quieter town roads in and out of Tillsonburg, exploring more of the pretty country side on this leisurely 17 km ride. Lush green fields and treed forest patches along either side of Derehem Line, just beyond Brownsville Road, make a super ride.

Slow down to enjoy some stops along Airport Road, starting at Highway #119/Plank Road with Coyle’s Country Store, famed for its baking supplies, nuts and giftware. Just 1 km east enroute is the Tillsonburg Airport, home to the WWII era Harvard aircraft. If your ride day coincides with a flight demonstration or practice, sit back on the Skyway Café deck to take it all in or come back for a flight experience. Then connect back up with the TransCanada Trail back into town, leaving plenty of time to look around.
