The 15th Annual Tour de Mississauga is returning as an in-person event on Sunday, September 18. The Tour de Mississauga provides an opportunity for those of all ages and cycling abilities to get outside, get active, show community pride and safely enjoy biking in Mississauga. The event is great for families with young children, those who are new to riding a bike as well as more advanced riders. This year, participants can choose from five different route options that start from Mississauga Celebration Square and showcase Mississauga’s cycling infrastructure.
The Tour de Mississauga is one of Ontario’s largest non-competitive cycling events. This year, participants can choose from 5 km, 10 km, 25 km, 50 km and 100 km route options. The rides will take place along on-road bike lanes, shared pathways, multi-use trails and some roads closed to vehicles.
Peel Regional Police, Support and Gear (SAG) vehicles and bike mechanics will be located along the routes. This level of support makes this the perfect event for families and those who want to increase their ride distance.
The routes will be active and marked from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Riders will depart in staggered starts.
Registration is required to participate and includes an entry fee for those 17 years old and up. Children 16 and under can participate for free when they register by Wednesday, September 7. Those who register by Wednesday, August 31 will receive a $5 discount on their registration when using promo code tour2022.
During registration, participants will select their route distance of choice. T-shirts can be purchased online for $20.
After your ride, enjoy a finish line festival with music, local entertainment and vendors at Mississauga Celebration Square.
