club-rides

Racer Sportif has been a mainstay in the GTA cycling community. Over the years our club has grown and expanded from our original rides leaving from the Bloor West Village store to now departing from the Port Credit area in Mississauga. This providing a halfway meet up point for members in Toronto, as well as Oakville.

Our club rides are on Wednesday evening at 6pm, and Sunday mornings at 9am early in the season, and 8am in season. Annually, our club members can enjoy exclusive special events, such as our feature event: Campfire Ride. Which we strongly encourage our members to take part in, as we represent our club proudly amongst the various other riders and clubs that participate in this amazing event on the beautiful roads of Hockley Valley, while raising funds and awareness for Camp Occhigeas. We also support Share the Road, and the Greg’s Cycle for Kids - https://www.gregscycleforkids.com/ Another great charity ride that takes place in Milton, ON during the later part of September.

We also have a Strava club page, that we encourage members to join, and is free of cost. Click here to join our Strava club

Please note that our club structure has changed. We no longer have separate group rides for the Toronto and Oakville locations. We have one group that rides collectively from Port Credit in Mississauga twice per week. As well as Track Cycling sessions twice per week during the offseason at the Velodrome in Milton.
