This is our sixth year our Bicycle Friendly Community Committee is offering group cycling experiences at Bike it to Leathertown Festival and each year we give it a new twist.

We are staging our two group rides from the Acton GO Station at the Leathertown Festival.

We invite you to make your way to the Acton Go Station parking lot by bike or bring your bike by car where you will find our free valet bike parking.  The two bike rides are planned to finish approximately when the Festival is fully underway. After your ride, leave your bike in our parking area and enjoy the food, the bands, the vintage cars and vendors. For more information on the festival please check out www.leathertownfestival.com.

Leathertown Highlights Spin – 1 ½  hours

This is an entry level ride suitable for families and could be of interest to anyone regardless of cycling skill. The route takes us on bike lanes and residential quiet streets within Acton.

We have created a ride that will show people the wonderful amenities and heritage neighbourhoods of Acton as well as loop along a town trail through a mature forest.  There will be brief stops at several of the interesting buildings in order to provide you with a bit of historical information.

Whether you are an Acton resident or someone with a curiosity about Acton’s heritage and highlights you will find this an interesting group tour.

There is no charge for but we request that you pre-register your intent to join us via email. It is important that we know in advance how many people will join us so that we can have leaders arranged for our groups.

Rural Vistas – 50km route -2 ½ hours approx.

This tour is an intermediate level bike ride through the rolling hills of rural Halton Hills and Milton. (Yes, technically Milton really does come this far north). The terrain is easy but the 50 kilometre distance will provide a challenge.

You will ride west out of Acton and will quickly be into the wonderful rural countryside.  We will be riding the rural roads of what was formerly known as the Townships of Esquesing and Nassagawaya that feature lovely farmlands and cool forests.

Please register your intention to join us by email hhcycling@haltonhills.ca. Please indicate if you are an intermediate or advanced cyclist.
