Tour de Mississauga

ARCHIVAL INFO FROM 2014:  What better way to explore Mississauga than on a bicycle?  Join an expected 3,300 riders for the 7th annual Tour de Mississauga on Sunday, September 21, 2014.  FREE Registration is OPEN.  We encourage riders to register early so we can predict our numbers!  Deadline for online registration is Friday, September 19, 2014 at noon. 

The volunteer organizers of the Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee (MCAC) have designed this event for every riding level, from beginners to experienced cyclists.  Now the largest free cycling tour in Canada, the Tour is open to all cyclists on any kind of bike including legal e-bikes.  Child trailers, bike-mounted child seats or tandem-tows are becoming a common sight on the Tour!  All minors 17 years and under must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.  Riders from out-of-town are welcome to participate!   

Five (5) routes to choose from (all MAPS are posted).  *NEW* this year: 120km ‘City Classic’ route.  By popular demand, we’ve added this even more challenging route which we estimate will take up to 6 hours to complete, all within the city boundaries!  Other distances: 15km, 30km, 60km and 100km.  All routes leave from, and return to, Mississauga Celebration Square.  Start / Finish line sponsored by Pedalinx

After the rides, participants can enjoy a free barbecue from 11am to 3pm compliments of the Region of Peel Walk + Roll program.  Snacks are also provided before the rides and mid-way along the routes.  

The Purolator ‘Tackle Hunger’ program will enable Tour riders to conveniently donate food items to the Mississauga Food Bank.  Another way riders can ‘give back’ is by bringing used cycling gear and bicycles for collection at the Square for later charitable distribution.
