Details about all of our rides
Join us for some fun rides in 2019! Explore different areas of Greater Sudbury. Learn how to safely ride in traffic from our ride leaders who are trained in advanced cycling skills.
Our rides run from May until the end of September. Rides will be offered in a variety of locations across Greater Sudbury. Our regular Thursday rides are approximately 20 to 26 km in length and will last approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. Other rides including our family rides are of varied length. We’ll be travelling on roads and hard packed trails, so rides will be suitable for all styles of bicycles, and for most riders except for those who are just learning to ride.
Details, including the route for the ride, will go up on our website and on our Facebook page a few days before the scheduled ride. Any cancellations due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances will also be announced the day of the ride on our website, Facebook page, and Twitter. We only cancel if there is the risk of thunder or poor conditions on the roads or trails.
Children are welcome on our rides, but parents are responsible for determining if their child can complete the ride.
We will always ensure that the group stays together – no rider will be left behind! Every ride will include a pre-ride safety talk and some tips on how to navigate the route. Riders will need to sign an attendance/waiver form, and all riders under 18 must wear a helmet.
Before each ride, please ensure that your bike is road-worthy. We’ll have a bicycle pump available prior to each ride, but we won’t be doing bike repairs or adjustments. We encourages all riders to wear helmets. And don’t forget to bring some water and snacks!
