NEW 2023 Route Maps
Most routes have been modified or designed new for 2023! Planning cycling routes takes a lot of care and consideration and we thank the folks at Speed River Bicycle for helping to plan this year’s routes! Please be sure to check back on this page or watch your email for updates prior to the event. Sometimes routes may need to be augmented due to construction that is unknown at the time the routes are first designed.
Fundraise to Ride: Accessible Bike Loop (5/10KM)
This will be a route through the Village by the Arboretum. Follow the signs!
Note that routes will only be marked for the group ride on Sunday, June 25th. We strongly recommend bringing a mobile device so you may refer to the map while you’re out on your ride.
Hydration & Snacks sponsored by DENSO Manufacturing Canada
With thanks to DENSO Manufacturing Canada, riders can stay hydrated and well fueled for their ride!
Inside the West Gymnasium where you’ll go to check in for your ride, stop by the DENSO vendor area to pick up some snacks for the road or to enjoy some coffee or tea while you wait for your ride to depart.
Before you head out for your ride, you can, fill your water bottle at the Guelph Water wagon located outside near the start area.
Also with thanks to DENSO Manufacturing Canada, additional water and snacks will be available at each rest stop, as well as electrolytes that you may add to your water.

Basic first aid supplies will also be available at every rest stop as well portable toilets.
