Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee
committee of Council formed in 1994 with representatives from each ward, two Councillors and
City staff. The committee meets monthly to advise on Mississauga's trail network and to promote
cycling awareness and safety.
Studies have shown the two most popular leisure activities preferred by
Mississauga residents are walking and cycling. As a result, the City of Mississauga developed a
Trails Master Plan. This plan was developed with the assistance of the MCAC and is intended to
guide the future development and expansion of Mississauga's trail system. The plan also ensures
that cycling and cyclists are in the forefront when planning new subdivisions and redeveloping
older areas. Contact Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee to offer your feedback of our
trails and bikeways.
Mississauga Cycling Master
Mississauga's Cycling Master Plan outlines a strategy to develop over 900 kilometres of on and
off-road cycling routes in the city over the next 20 years.
