Entertainment and activities | May 29, 2023
This June, the City is celebrating Bike Month with free virtual and in-person activities all month long. There’s no better time to hop on your bike, learn new skills and connect with other cyclists in Mississauga. Whether you travel everywhere on two wheels or you’re new to the sport, cycling is a great way to get outdoor exercise and boost your mood.
Try these free Bike Month activities taking place throughout June.
Learn how to cycle safely and inclusively in your community
On Wednesdays throughout June, take part in a webinar to learn something new about cycling while joining other cycling enthusiasts across the Greater Toronto Area.
Come out to Fix-it Friday to get your bike checked out
Every Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., you can get your bike checked by a mechanic. Checks can include the basic ABC (air, breaks/bell and chain/crank arm) bicycle check and other basic repair needs like flat tire fixes.
While you’re getting your bike checked, pick up a free activity pass. Activity passes can be used at a drop-in class or a recreational facility at one of the City’s community centres this June only. Drop-in classes and schedules can be found on Active Mississauga. Activity passes are only available at Fix-it Friday events. Supply is limited. Only one activity pass per person.
Make sure to look for the blue Mississauga pop-up tent on the following trails during Bike Month:
Join a guided Community Ride
Community Rides are guided group rides taking place in various neighbourhoods from now until October. They are the perfect opportunity for those new to cycling to get more comfortable on their bike, experience Mississauga’s cycling infrastructure and meet others in the community. Two Community Rides will be taking place in June:
Explore Peel Region at Bike the Creek
Bike the Creek will be taking place on Saturday, June 10 starting at the Jim Archdekin Recreation Centre in Brampton. The free event encourages bike riders of all ages and skill levels to discover the joys of cycling. You can choose from various routes, from six kilometres to 67 kilometres long. All rides highlight trails throughout the Region of Peel, including routes through Mississauga.
This event is free and planned in partnership with BikeBrampton, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), City of Brampton, Town of Caledon and City of Mississauga. Register now.
Bike to the farmers market
The City is offering free bike valet service at the Lakeview Farmers Market on Sundays. Your bike will be secure while you shop local.
Plan your bike route
Whether you prefer wooded trails, waterfront views or riding your bike as your main form of transportation, there’s a trail for everyone, regardless of your skill level.
Use Mississauga’s cycling map to locate trails and discover ideas on where to cycle.
Cycling etiquette and road rules
When out for a bike ride, remember to follow the rules of the road, be courteous to other trail users and obey all shared trail etiquette. Cyclists who are under the age of 18 must wear a helmet; however, everyone is encouraged to wear a helmet when riding their bike.
