Mississauga Embraces BikeFriday!

Great news out of the city just west of Toronto!

The City of Mississauga and Smart Commute Mississauga is embracing the last Friday of every month as BikeFriday – with the inaugural ride (and breakfast!) scheduled for this Friday, June 29th!

All the details can be found on the Smart Commute site as well, but here they are:

The last Friday of each month is Bike Friday in Mississauga.

Smart Commute Mississauga is encouraging all cyclists to participate in the Bike Friday campaign by riding to work on the last Friday of each month. Riding in a group encourages novice cyclists to participate and makes cyclists more visible to motorists. Organized rides also show motorists that cycling is a viable alternative to driving.

Inaugural Ride & Pancake Breakfast

Councilors Parrish and Mullin along with the Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee and Smart Commute Mississauga invite you to the inaugural Bike Friday ride and pancake breakfast on Friday June 29th.

Ride Details

Cyclists will meet at the Barn in Riverwood Park (1447 Burnhamthorpe Rd. W.) for a reception from 7:00am to 7:30am. Cyclists will be given a registration patch and entered for random draw prizes.

Enter Riverwood Park from the north side of Burnhamthorpe Road. The park is located on the eastern bank of the Credit River. Proceed to the top of the hill and follow the signs to the Barn.

At 7:45am cyclists will leave for City Hall where they will be greeted with a pancake breakfast. Councilor Parrish will be serving pancakes for all cyclists.

The Route – Approximately 4.5 km.

NEWS: A Complete List of Bloor Bike Lane Articles
