Biking is a wheelie great way to enjoy the riverfront trails! Exploring the Petitcodiac on two wheels can help you see more of the beautiful river, and experience vantage points that you may not get to visit on foot.
Don’t own a bike? Or just don’t feel like riding in city traffic? No problem! There are a number of places that offer bike rental and can get you set up in no time; start with your local bike shop.
