Join the 50 for 50 challenge

As part of Mississauga’s 50th anniversary, we are encouraging residents to give back to the community by participating in the 50 for 50 challenge. You can do your part by showing your appreciation for the benefits of cycling – whether you bike 50-kilometres or bike for 50-minutes to help reduce your carbon emissions or simply stay active. Once you complete the challenge, download your 50 for 50 certificate to show off your civic pride.
