Photo Opportunity: Ride the Mississauga Transitway on Two Wheels at Tour de Mississauga

Entertainment and activities | September 16, 2015

This year’s 8th annual Tour de Mississauga will be a photo you don’t want to miss. Each of the five routes will travel on the Mississauga Transitway – the City’s new dedicated bus corridor.

More than 3,500 riders in brightly coloured Tour de Mississauga T-shirts and cycling jerseys will leave Mississauga Celebration Square this Sunday morning to hit the pavement of the Mississauga Transitway. On this one day only, bicycles will be able to ride on the transitway without any bus traffic.

The Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee promises a range of ages from young children in trailers to older adults, enjoying our city on two wheels.
