Mississauga Community Ride - Culham Trail 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

START / END: Erindale Park parking lot, 1695 Dundas Street West. FREE refreshments after the ride.

FEATURE: The ride coincides with the annual trout and salmon run (migration) upstream on the Credit River. View the Credit Valley Conservation webpage about viewing locations and tips.

IMPORTANT - TYPE OF BIKE: Use of a hybrid, touring or mountain bike is essential (route NOT suitable for road bikes). Tire width should be at least 32mm. The trail is often rugged and/or steep. There is no paved alternative for the trail portion of the route.

CHALLENGE: This is a ride through a beautiful section of Mississauga with some great views of the Credit River and its surrounding natural environment. However, riders who are considering this ride need to be aware of the challenges associated with it. It is not suitable for small children. Bikes should be in good repair.

Riders should be reasonably fit to handle this ride based on the following characteristics:

- Of the total distance of 27.8 km, ~ 30% of the ride is on unpaved trails, consisting of crushed stone and gravel.
- In some places the gravel is quite loose; caution is required to maintain lateral stability on the bike.
- There are (3) very steep climbs ranging from 100M to 300M in total length, one of which is on an unpaved trail.
- There are two very steep descents with sharp turns in the middle and at the bottom. One is on an unpaved trail. The other descent is paved but levels out onto a gravel section. Extreme caution is required for these descents.
- Ensure brakes are functioning efficiently, as riders will have to be applying their brakes for the entire descent to avoid a serious collision. There is also an option to walk bikes down these hills.

NOTE: The FREE Community Rides are a series of casual cycling tours in all corners of Mississauga from May until October. Led by citizen member volunteers of the Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee (MCAC), group rides are an opportunity for residents to explore Mississauga on their bikes.

Location: Erindale Park parking lot, 1695 Dundas Street West
