Register now for Ride and Meet with Federal Candidates, Wed. Sept. 25

You’ve heard of federal ridings well this is one with a twist. Come out and ride with the federal candidates!

Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation (GCAT) has invited the main federal candidates on a bike ride with the public on Sept. 25!!

During the ride, we will utilize current multi-use paths and painted bike lanes. GCAT guides will highlight upcoming and some potential cycling infrastructure projects that would increase the safety of riders and increase the amount of people choosing cycling for transportation. You will have the opportunity to learn more about cycling in Guelph, your local candidates and their commitment to accelerating funding for active transportation infrastructure. Post ride, we will gather at Red Brick Cafe to socialize with the local candidates.

Don’t forget your helmet, bike lights and your bike lock!

Spaces limited! Pre-registration required on Eventbrite. Click here to pre- register. . A waiver is required to participate in this event.
