Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to get their bicycles tuned up by experts, take part in a bicycle-decorating contest, and even try out e-bikes and e-scooters.

By providing a platform for residents to come together and celebrate the joys of cycling, the event not only fosters a sense of camaraderie but also encourages sustainable transportation practices.

Moreover, initiatives like the “50 for 50 challenge” demonstrate Mississauga’s commitment to environmental stewardship and civic responsibility. By incentivizing residents to embrace cycling as a means of reducing carbon emissions and staying active, the city is paving the way for a greener, healthier future.
