Come out for the sixth annual “Love Your Bike Festival!” This festival includes the young and old in celebrating Guelph’s favourite mode of transportation – The Bike!

Give your bike some love! Three of Guelph’s cycling shops (Backpeddling, Paramount Sports and Speed River Bicycle) will be on hand to offer free mechanical checks in preparation for the Tour de Guelph which rolls out the following week.

Here are some of the highlights:

A“Wrench-Off” at 9:45am featuring Guelph’s top bike mechanics in a friendly flat-fixing competition
An antique bike display, courtesy of Clayton Foxall from Backpeddling
A moment of silence at 10:15am for fallen cyclists followed by a “Blessing of the Bikes”
Free coffee and treats before 11am!
Two group rides leave at 10:30 am sharp (registration starts at 9:15am; helmets required)
A police escorted family ride, called The “Easy Rider Parade,” led by Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation (GCAT). On this ride, we will be stopping at Exhibition Park where the Guelph Public Library will be offering a book reading and crafts about all things bicycle related.
The “Two Rivers Ride,” along the recreation trails to Guelph Lake and back, led by Guelph Off Road Bicycling Association (GORBA)

Rides finish at The Wooly at 12:00 noon with a BBQ, refreshments and prizes provided by Steam Whistle Brewery. Kids who participate get a free hotdog and a drink!
