About The Rides
The citizen member volunteers of the Mississauga Advisory Cycling Committee (MCAC) organize a free community ride series from May through October.
The 2017 Community Ride series features 24 free rides in all corners of the city. The community rides are scheduled for Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings and range between 12 and 30 kilometres. Rides kick off with a safety talk and ride briefing. Participants split up in groups based on speed and skill level. MCAC members and volunteer marshals lead the groups along the route. The groups ride at a leisurely pace, follow traffic rules and no participants get left behind.
Find detailed Community Ride information including start times, location, and routes on the MCAC website. Participants are required to sign up for the Community Rides online. Click on the upcoming rides below to register:
