Celebrate Canada Day with a moderate or easy ride to Sydenham to take in the festivities! This ride will travel to Sydenham via back roads, ending at the Sydenham Canada Day event at the Point. Get out your red and white colour-themed cycle clothing and other patriotic gear!! Both rides will meet up in Sydenham for the parade.
The parade leaves the Sydenham Fire hall at 1PM. Our rides will arrive in time for cyclists to visit festivities by the water and get lunch at the all day community bar-b-que before the parade comes by. There is also a beach for swimming and live music throughout. For more information about the Sydenham Canada Day activities, go to http://www.canadadaysydenham.com/
