Are you looking to put in some kilometers on your bike during the week?

MEC hosts a free group ride every Monday night. Join our experienced cycling staff as they lead you and a group on a tour of the surrounding area. A great opportunity to get out, find some new riding partners and maybe pick-up some tips on technique and gear.

The ride will average between 20 and 50kms each week. Participants should be able to ride at a minimum of 20km/h for 1.5hrs.

It’s a no-drop ride, so no riders get left behind.

Locations will vary, so please check each week for updates:

For the week of July 24th the ride will begin at Line 1 South, Oro-Medonte, proceed to Ridge Road and then north to a convenience store at Line 7. After a brief stop, the ride will turn around and head back to the lot at Line 1. This a ride is approximately 24km and is suitable for a variety of skill levels
