ASHBURN TO PORT PERRY
A relatively new route for Country Cruises kindly shared by the Wednesday Wheelies! This ride takes us to Port Perry, a favourite former CC lunch stop location, on Lake Scugog. It is a rolling terrain route from the village of Ashburn to Port Perry.
Start: Meet for a 9:00 am departure at Ashburn Community Park on the west side of Ashburn Road, 200 m north of the main intersection. Map
To get to Ashburn, drive east on Hwy 401 to Brock Road, north to CR5 at Claremont, then east to Ashburn on Concession 9 and north to the parking lot. Driving directions
Facilities are in the form of a Porta Potty in the parking lot. The alternative is to stop at a restaurant or gas station just after exiting the 401 and before heading north.
Lunch option 1 is White Feather Country Store if you wish to have lunch before Port Perry (reviews).
Lunch option 2 is bring food or buy lunch in Port Perry and picnic in the park overlooking Lake Scugog.
