Cyclosportif Perth – Cycle Tour


Come join hundreds of cyclists on the roads in, around and between Perth, Murphy’s Point, Portland, and Westport.

Cyclosportif Perth – Cycle Tour will be taking place on September 23rd, 2017, starting at the Perth Lions Club.

The Perth area is a beautiful and well kept secret for cycling. Maybe surprisingly, the area also has a tremendous network of dirt roads and trails on which to ride. These routes can be used to cut across some of the busier paved roads. They also tend to go in areas not normally seen on two wheels. Some of the best riding can be found on these routes, and this is your chance to check them out!

Cyclosportive Perth is not a race–there will be no results and no timed sections. You can go hard if you want, or you can simply take your time and enjoy the scenery.

We’ve got something for most everyone, from “The Roadie 100k” to “The Roadie Century” to the even more adventurous folks who like a bit of dirt and gravel with “The Dirty Version”–118k on a mix of paved and dirt roads.

Come and explore this great area on two wheels. There is so much to see.

Perth’s Watershed Discovery Day


Bring your family – and all your questions on our water, our lakes and the programs underway to protect them – for an entertaining and informative morning for all ages.

How safe is our water?
Should I be testing my well?
Is bottled water better to drink than tap water?
Where is the best paddling and camping in the area?
What are invasive species, and should I worry?
What is the status of blue green algae?
Are zebra mussels and loosestrife still a problem?
Are major changes underway in our lake and stream water levels?
What is being done with the Haggart and the Bobs Lake dams?

For the Children:
This is a fun and informative morning featuring the popular Paddling Puppeteers, our educational ‘fish pond’, the Perth & District Library story corner, water critters display, and prizes for all.
