Greg's Ride: Ontario's Ride for Safer Cycling
Registration is now open for the 12th Annual Greg's Ride!
All across Ontario, people are riding their bikes in support of amazing causes. There are rides for heart, rides for cancer and rides for mental health - Greg's Ride: Ontario's Ride for Safer Cycling is the only bike ride supporting cycling advocacy.
The 12th Annual Greg's Ride is taking place in the Hamilton, Ontario region on Sunday, September 24. We will begin and end all rides at 65 Hatt Street in Dundas by the Shawn & Ed Brewing Company. 100% of the profits will go towards our advocacy to build an Ontario where:
- Every student participates in a cycling training course,
- Our communities are connected by a network of cycle tracks, bike lanes and paved shoulders, and
- Every Ontario resident feels safe & comfortable hopping on their bicycle.
If you would like to volunteer, we would love to have you! Click here to complete our volunteer form.
*As a note, we have decided to cancel Saturday's Bikes & Brews social, but look forward to seeing everyone at the ride on Sunday.
Greg's Ride History

At Greg's Ride: Ontario's Ride for Safer Cycling, we ride in Greg's Memory, celebrating how far cycling has come in over 10 years and striving to making Ontario the safest place in Canada to ride a bike.
Since Greg's Ride began, we have hosted it in Halton region. In 2017 we are excited to host the 12th Annual Greg’s Ride in the
