Mississauga Bike Challenge - 2018

September 2018:  The second annual Mississauga Bike Challenge closed on Sunday, September 16, 2018.  NOTE: Riders may log any rides completed during the challenge period, until September 30, 2018.

The City of Mississauga challenged residents to bicycle 500,000 km between June 10 and September 16 (extended one day to include the Tour de Mississauga) to support Mississauga’s hospitals through the Trillium Health Partners Foundation.

Every 10 kilometres cycled will unlock $1 (recently improved to $5) for Mississauga’s hospitals, up to $50,000, donated by The Humberview Group.

The Challenge is designed for all rides, short or long, for recreation or a commute to work.  Every ride will help to meet the community goal.

► Particulars about the 2018 Bike Challenge are in the 3-page Report at Mississauga Council's General Committee (AGENDA, Item 8.3) on May 2, 2018.

CHALLENGE ENDED:  See the City's 2018 Mississauga Bike Challenge WEBSITE to view the results.

Mississauga Bike Challenge - 2017

The first annual Mississauga Bike Challenge kicked-off on June 29, 2017.  The City of Mississauga challenged residents to collectively cycle 150,000 km by September 17, 2017.  The City committed to plant one tree for every 150 km collectively cycled and logged.  This was an opportunity for cyclists to create a lasting legacy of 1000 trees as part of Mississauga's Canada150 celebrations.  What a success!  All told, 590 participants earned a total of 1,360 trees that will be planted in Mississauga in the Fall of 2017 and Spring of 2018.  This planting also contributes to the City's One Million Trees project.  We will post Spring 2018 tree planting events below as we complete this project.
