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 on Sunday, September 24, 2017 and 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.
In addition to our annual bike ride on Sunday, September 24th, we will also be hosting a ‘Bikes & Brews’ Social Event on Saturday, September 23, the night before ride day.
‘Bikes & Brews’ is taking place from 7:30 to 11:00 pm at Shawn & Ed Brewing Company,
