City services | May 25, 2023

Dust off your bike and pump up your tires, because Community Rides are back. Whether you’re new to cycling or a cycling expert, come out and enjoy one of the City’s Community Rides. Community Rides are free, guided rides that allow you to enjoy your neighbourhood by bike, meet new people and connect with your community all while exploring Mississauga’s growing cycling infrastructure.

As a rider, you’ll have the choice to join an in-person ride or enjoy the routes at a time of your choosing using the online bike route map. Starting Saturday, June 3, Community Rides will be taking place every two weeks until the end of October. All rides take place in different neighbourhoods in Mississauga and range between five to 24 kilometres in length.

Cycling etiquette and road rules

Riders are reminded to follow all rules of the road and obey shared trail etiquette while cycling in Mississauga. Remember to:

  • Wear a helmet:
    • Helmets must be worn by cyclists under the age of 18. However, everyone is encouraged to wear a helmet when riding their bike.
  • Be courteous to other trail users:
    • Always keep to the right of the trail, particularly if you are traveling at a slower speed.
    • If passing others, always pass on your left and use your bell or a signal before passing another cyclist or pedestrian.
  • Be aware of others:
    • Don’t block the trail. If stopping for a break, pull off to the side or off of the trail completely.
    • When approaching a sharp turn on your bike that obstructs your view, approach slowly, use your bell or give a verbal warning and proceed when clear to do so.
  • Be seen and be safe:
    • Make sure your bike has a light and reflectors that can be seen by others.
