Cycling in Mississippi Mills

Get Out There

 

Adopt a Road Program – Mississippi Mills Bicycle Month has been a Lanark County Adopt a Road group since 2012. We have laid claim to the section of County Road 17 (Blakeney Road) from Carss Street in North East Almonte to the former railway crossing toward Blakeney.

Almonte Bicycle Works – Long time and year round cyclist, Bill Barrie, is ‘the’ go to bicycle mechanic in Mississippi Mills, if not all of Eastern Ontario. Bill knows his stuff and can help you with all your bicycle needs from sizing an affordable bike for your child to sourcing studded tires to keep you riding when others have hung up their bikes. Choose from a new Raleigh to a repurposed beautiful ‘Beauty,’ Bill’s own signature line hand-built with love and attention, to an affordable Haiti Bike. To learn more about Bill and his much treasured Almonte Bicycle Works, follow the link to the ABW website.

Bicycles for Haiti Program – Local residents are welcome to drop off used and neglected bikes in support of this program, which continues to raise funds for Haiti’s redevelopment.

OBC Cyclocross – We are proud of MM Bicycle Month alumnus Bob Woods who has been organizing cyclocross races in Mississippi Mills and across Eastern Ontario for more than 25 years. Follow the link to learn all about this exciting bicycle race discipline.

RIMM Rovers – The RIMM (Riding In Mississippi Mills) Rovers and Slow Spokes are mostly retired or semi retired folk who want to remain actively healthy and enjoy fresh air. They ride mostly back roads around Almonte where it is safest at a leisurely pace. The Rovers’ rides are 20-40km in length. The Slow Spokes’ rides are 10-25km.

Rusty Spokes – A casual riding group, mostly retired, who meet weekly at 9:00 am on Wednesdays for a relaxing 20km country ride to enjoy each other’s company, the landscape, to have a few laughs, and to get a little exercise.

Silver Chain Challenge – The Challenge is a friendly competition within the nine communities of Lanark County, as well as between Lanark and Renfrew Counties, to inspire and promote more active and healthier communities.
