Explore the City by Bike with Family-Friendly Self-Guided Tour de Mississauga Event 

September 21, 2021

The 14th Annual Tour de Mississauga event is returning on Sunday, September 26 with self-guided bike routes located throughout the city. This family-friendly, non-competitive cycling event encourages residents of all ages and cycling abilities to hop on their bike and experience Mississauga’s cycling network. This year, the City has marked out five bike routes on Mississauga’s cycling infrastructure that range from 5km to 100 km. As a self-guided event, participants can enjoy the routes at their own pace with plenty of personal space, making this a perfect event for both families with young children and more advanced riders. With many Mississauga residents discovering or re-discovering their love for biking during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Tour de Mississauga provides an opportunity to get outside, get active, show community pride and safely enjoy biking in the city.
