ALL ARE WELCOME:  UTM students are welcome to participate!  For Mississauga residents, this is an opportunity to tour the City's only university campus.  We are partnered with the UTM Environmental Affairs Office for this ride.

REFRESHMENTS:  Ice cream treats will be served at UTM Bike Share Office after the ride.

NOTE: The FREE Community Rides are a series of casual cycling tours in all corners of Mississauga from May until October. Led by citizen member volunteers of the Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee (MCAC), group rides are an opportunity for residents to explore Mississauga on their bikes.
