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.
