In 2017, The City of Mississauga partnered with Mississauga Forestry to reach its goal of planting 1,000,000 trees by 2032. From June to September 2017 participants earned one tree for every 150 kilometres cycled and logged through the Mississauga Bike Challenge.
The 2017 challenge was a success and the 150,000 kilometre community goal was met and exceeded. 650 participants collectively logged 5,832 bike rides adding up to a total of 204,026 kilometres. Together participants unlocked 1,360 trees provided by Mississauga Parks and Forestry and helped plant them in and around the Mississauga trail system in the fall of 2017 and spring of 2018.
