Orillia Bicycle Rally

The Trails for Life committee is hosting the third annual Orillia Bicycle Rally on Wednesday, Sept. 22. The rally will leave from the Couchiching Beach parking lot at 6:00pm, and will once again travel along the 10km route described here.

Wednesday Sept. 22 will also be Walk or Bike to Work day - Orillians are encouraged to use active transportation to travel to work or school on the 22nd.
Orillia has hired an active transportation consultancy group to write an Active Transportation Plan for the city, which will then be embedded in the city's Official Plan. The work will be done through fall 2010 and winter 2011, and will likely presented to city council this coming spring.

If you live in Orillia, ride your bike on September 22.
  • Show up and demonstrate to the people running for city council that active transportation is a key issue that the people of Orillia want to see addressed!
  • Members of the Active Transportation consultancy group will be on hand at the rally and will want to know what YOU THINK needs to be done to make it safer to walk and bike around this city.
