2018 Mississauga Bike Challenge
The City of Mississauga challenges its residents to cycle 500,000 kilometres between June 10 and September 15 to support Mississauga’s hospitals through the Trillium Health Partners Foundation.
Participating in the Mississauga Bike Challenge is free, easy, and fun! Go for bike rides, keep track of your kilometres and log them into the challenge to help reach our 500,000 kilometre community goal.
This year, The Humberview Group is donating $50,000 to the Bike Challenge. For every 10 kilometres you cycle and log, it will unlock a $1 donation to the Trillium Health Partners Foundation.
