Brampton Community Rides 2018
Brampton Cycling Advisory Committee is happy to announce the 2018 Calendar of Community Rides, sponsored by City of Brampton.
Free Brampton Community Rides are a series of casual cycling tours held in each Brampton Ward from May to September. Led by citizen member volunteers of Brampton Cycling Advisory Committee (BCAC), these group rides provide opportunities for residents and visitors to explore Brampton on their bicycles, followed by a free refreshment.
Sign up to make sure there is a refreshment waiting for you at the end of your ride!

A friendly reminder that riders agree to ride at their own risk and are requested to sign the waiver before participating. Helmet use with fastened chin strap is strongly encouraged, and is mandatory for those under 18. Parents have a duty to ensure helmet use for children under 16. Riders are photographed for promotional purposes. Bring water and wear sunscreen.
Riders are encouraged to register to ensure there is a refreshment waiting for you at the end of the ride. Rides 1-10 have both 5km and 15km routes. Rides 11-14 have only 15km routes with a snack break part way along, instead of at the end. Routes are carefully planned and may be subject to change should situations arise. Do pay attention to the Ride Leader and Sweeper, obey the rules of road and have fun!
