Food Cycle Ride 2016

Mark Sunday, May 29th. in your calendar and join friends and family for another wonderful day of bike touring, entertainment, good food and good conversation.

Registering and donating on line is a convenient feature of the Food Cycle Ride.  Please click on the Registration Tab and get started.  If you would like to register and collect pledges off-line,please download the three forms in the Download section of the right-hand column of this page.

Important note Road Routes:  Deteriorating road conditions on Middlebrook Road between 8th. line and Elora required that we reroute 35 km riders back up to County Rd. 21. This has added 3 km to the 35 km route which, last year was 38 km.  We have made several changes to the 70 km road route resulting in a 74 km distance.  


The Food Cycle Ride is an annual event held to benefit the Centre Wellington Food Bank. Proceeds support the use of the Food Bank’s Community Kitchen to prepare healthy meals for its users and for other community groups and to teach food preparation classes.  The Food Cycle Ride over scenic routes through beautiful Centre Wellington has raised over $50,000 for the Food Bank in the five years since its inception in 2011.
