Details:
The May 5 route will take riders on a 20 kilometre round trip. Learn more about each ride and find out which rides include bikefests, have a safety or family focus or will help you train for the Tour de Mississauga. Register at mississaugacycling.ca.

Marshals divide the group into three levels with a goal to ensure riders are comfortable with their level and pace. There is a mandatory helmet policy adopted by the MCAC stating that all riders must wear helmets. The kick off ride and ice cream after all Community Rides are sponsored by Toronto Pearson.
