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.
