This year Cyclon will be visiting Waterloo, a short 90-minute drive from Toronto, and staying on the Wilfrid Laurier University campus. Visiting cyclists will be able to enjoy rides along the Grand River, pass traditional Mennonite farms, and follow country routes to famous local landmarks including the St. Jacob’s Market and Elora Gorge.  Waterloo Town Square has undergone significant renovation since 2006, and more adventurous cyclists may want to take the newly installed Light Rail Transit system linking Waterloo, Kitchener and Cambridge to explore other regions.

You will love the:

  • Rolling hills and vistas along the Grand River
  • Great riding with routes available to suit your level of cycling
  • Landmarks and heritage buildings; West Montrose Covered Bridge, Elora Gorge and Elora Mill, and the St. Jacobs Farmers' Market
  • Friday night reception and ice-breaker with pizza and snacks
  • Easy on-line registration
  • Fabulous Sunday banquet followed by karaoke and dancing
  • Information package with route maps
  • Post-ride socials on Saturday and Sunday with snacks
  • Company and camaraderie of other cyclists
  • Optional Saturday night group activities
