Bike Sudbury

We offer free community rides during the cycling season on Thursday evenings. Rides start in mid-May and usually run until mid-September. Rides on other days may be offered based on the capacity of our ride leaders.

Rides are led by experienced cyclists. We travel on roads and hard packed trails, so rides will be suitable for all styles of bicycles, and for most riders except for those who are just learning to ride. Children are welcome on our rides, but parents are responsible for determining if their child can complete the ride.

We will always ensure that the group stays together – no rider will be left behind! Every ride will include a pre-ride safety talk and some tips on how to navigate the route. Riders will need to sign an attendance/waiver form, and all riders under 18 must wear a helmet. Riders must follow the rules of the road.

The rides usually start at 6:30 pm although they may be moved to 6:00 pm later in the season to ensure we finish before dusk. Registrations start at 6:15 pm.

Details, including the route for the ride, will go up on our website and on our social media a few days before the scheduled ride. Any cancellations due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances will also be announced the day of the ride on our website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by 5 pm. We typically only cancel if there is the risk of thunder, extreme heat, or poor conditions on the roads or trails.

Before each ride, please ensure that your bike is road-worthy. We’ll have a bicycle pump available prior to each ride, but we won’t be doing bike repairs or adjustments. We encourage all riders to wear helmets. And don’t forget to bring some water and snacks!
