Cycling Events This Week: July 4 – 11

Here’s a fun rundown of everything going on over the next 7 days!

You can always find this info or events far into the future on the always updating Events page, or follow our special @BikeTOevents account on twitter!

All Week:

  • Great Waterfront Trail Adventure
    • The Great Waterfront Trail Adventure (GWTA) is an 8-day fully supported bike tour of the entire Waterfront Trail from Niagara to Quebec. You ride at your own pace, we transport luggage to the overnight campsites located in host waterfront communities. The 2010 hosts are Niagara-on-the-Lake (July 3rd); Hamilton, Pickering, Cobourg, Picton, Ivy Lea, Johnstown and Cornwall. The GWTA is limited to 250 riders and we welcome both experienced cyclists (there are 4 century rides) and recreational riders who never dreamed they could ride all day for eight days and love it. There is a registration cost but no fund-raising, and you can sign up for one or all eight days. This is the best way to explore Ontario’s Great Lake waterfront. People from all over Canada and the US participate.

Tues, July 6th:
