Greg's Ride: Ontario's Ride for Safer Cycling
Thanks to the 200+ riders who joined us for the 2016 Greg's Ride!
Stay tuned for 2017 details, coming soon.
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 2016 event took place at the Mohawk Inn and Conference Centre on Sunday, September 25th, 2016 and 100% of the profits went 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.
Greg's Ride History
In 2006, OPP Sergeant Greg Stobbart was killed while cycling on Tremaine Road in Milton. After Greg’s death, his wife Eleanor McMahon founded the Share the Road Cycling Coalition in his memory to advocate for safer roads for all Ontarians. At Greg's Ride: Ontario's Ride for Safer Cycling, we ride in Greg's Memory, celebrating how far cycling has come in 10 years and striving to making Ontario the safest place in Canada to ride a bike.
We have made changes to the routes for the 11th Annual Greg's Ride and this year's event does not include a group visit to Greg's Memorial. If you would like to visit the memorial independently before or after the ride, it is located on Tremaine Road near the intersection with Pringle.
