Bike it to Leathertown

REGISTER NOW FOR ‘BIKE IT’

TO LEATHERTOWN FESTIVAL


HALTON HILLS, ON – Bike-it Halton Hills is offering three free group bike rides in partnership with the Acton BIA’s Leathertown Festival on Sunday, August 12.

While rides are open to anyone, each ride is designed to attract a specific kind of cyclist ranging from beginner to advanced. The rides will start at 9 a.m. and finish in plenty of time for participants to enjoy the Festival.


“Acton is a wonderful place to bike. The whole town is easily bikeable and the rural area offers exceptional cycle touring opportunities,” said Bike-it volunteer Heather Price-Jones. “Our goal is to encourage more biking tours and give people a group cycling experience.”


The Leathertown Highlights Spin is a family-friendly 12 km tour of Acton. The pace will be leisurely and will stop at points of interest throughout Acton. Commentary will be provided by the guide at each stop along the way. Participants will experience off-road trails, heritage buildings, historic districts, beautiful parks and a variety of neighbourhoods both old and new.


Leathertown Rural Loop is a new 23 km tour of beautiful escarpment farmland. This ride travels on rural roads and is designed for the intermediate rider. Cyclists should plan on taking an hour and a half for this ride.


Leathertown Rural Vistas is a 53 km ride for the advanced cyclist. It is a scenic tour of rural Esquesing and Nassagawaya. The countryside is gently rolling allowing for beautiful vistas with interesting terrain.


All three rides start and finish at the Acton GO Station. Following the ride, cyclists can leave their bikes at the free valet bike parking corral while they enjoy the delicious food and amazing entertainment offered at the Festival. The Festival entertainment schedule can be found at leathertownfestival.com


Bike ride details are available at haltonhills.ca/cycling. Registration in advance is requested by emailing hhcycling@haltonhills.ca

The Bike-it to Leathertown group rides are organized by Bike-it Halton Hills; a volunteer group dedicated to encouraging cycling and advocating for cycling education and improvement.
