Spooky Nighttime Halloween Event Coming to Mississauga


You might be too old to go trick or treating, but you're never too old to enjoy Halloween-related celebrations on chilly (and spooky) October nights in Mississauga.

If you like to get some exercise in the great outdoors, you might be happy to hear that the Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee (MCAC) is hosting its sixth annual Halloween Nighttime Ride.

The ride, which will take place on Friday, Oct. 26 at 7:00 p.m., will take riders on a 15 km adventure through part of the city.

If you're interested, you can meet other riders at the Port Credit Arena (40 Stavebank Rd), just north of Lakeshore Road.  

Free parking is available in the public parking lot.

As far as rules go, MCAC says bike lights are a must and that it will be very dark. In fact, there are no streetlights in some sections. MCAC will be handing out free bike lights.  

"Coloured strings of decorative lights are a great way to decorate your bike," MCAC says, adding that helmets must be worn, even if you come in costume (which is encouraged).

It will be cool along the Waterfront Trail, so riders are advised to dress for the weather.

There will be prizes for best costumes and most decked-out bikes.
