With June upon us once again, it is officially Mississippi Mills Bike Month here in the Almonte area. As avid cyclists, this is a special time of year for us and one we use not only to get folks in the great outdoors but also to create awareness for the many wonderful cycling opportunities our area presents.
Organized by the Mississippi Mills Bicycle Movement, Bike Month takes place each and every June here in the Almonte area, celebrating cycling with a variety of events around Mississippi Mills.
In an effort to encourage safe cycling, the month is filled with events including guided rides, movies, parades, bike polo and professional races. Each and every year, as part of the event, we proudly organize our annual Birders on Bikes event to encourage both safe cycling and to promote the amazing birding opportunities the area provides as well.
