 Explore Mississauga by bike, meet new people, and connect with your community.

Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee (MCAC) Community Rides

The citizen member volunteers of the Mississauga Advisory Cycling Committee (MCAC) organize a free community ride series from May to October sponsored by the Greater Toronto Airport Authority (GTAA).

The 2019 Community Ride series will feature free rides in all corners of the city. The community rides are scheduled for Saturday mornings and range between 5 and 20 kilometers. Rides kick off with a safety talk and ride briefing before participants split into groups based on speed, distance, and skill level.  MCAC members and volunteer marshals then lead the groups at a leisurely pace, following traffic rules, and leaving no participants behind.

COMING SOON!

The 2019 Community Ride schedule will be posted soon along with registration details.
