Cyclepalooza is a free event jointly presented by the Halton Hills Bicycle Friendly Community Committee and the Library. It is a family friendly event that explores and celebrates all the joys of cycling in Halton Hills and beyond.
Whether you are a casual cyclist, a cycling tourist or a hard core trainer, we have something for you.
Come for a presentation on the fabulous Mattamy Velodrome, which is already bustling with activity and find out how you can access it.
Check out our Dutch Cycling Video Series and be both amazed and entertained. You can also drop by the Green Belt Cycling Route table for information on the newest cycling tour which has a stopover in Georgetown in August. For the more adventurous, pick up brochures on international cycling tourism, mountain biking and racing. There really is something for everyone.
Attend a spring bike maintenance workshop and get professional advice from Ollie Tuchel.
Bring your bike helmets with you to take have them professionally fitted by Halton Police. Then take them to the helmet decorating area for a chance to win prizes.
