12th Annual Greg's Ride
Sun, 24 September 2017, 9:30 AM – 3:00 PM EDT
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 in Hamilton, Ontario on Sunday, September 24. 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.
We are offering 3 ride distances this year from our new venue in Hamilton, Ontario: 5km, 25km and 75km. Distances are approximate and subject to small changes.
Registration for this event includes a hot lunch, on-route support, snack stations, Steamwhistle beverages, a kit bag of goodies and family-friendly post ride fun!
In 2006, OPP Segeant Greg Stobbart was killed in a training ride 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. This year, as we host the 12th Annual ride in memory of Greg, we join together as a community to remember those who have been affected by cycling collisions, to celebrate the joys of cycling and to support the work of Share the Road in building safer, more accessible and more comfortable places to cycle for more people in Ontario.
