Cycle Aurora encourages biking enthusiasts to re-discover community

·1 min read

Your mission, should you choose to accept it: rediscover your community one pedal at a time.

That’s the aim of Cycle Aurora, a new biking initiative the Town is set to launch Saturday.

“It’s bike season and the Town of Aurora is thrilled to announce the new Cycle Aurora challenge!” said the Town in a statement. “Stay active this season while riding your bike, whether it is outside on the road or trail, or on your indoor bike from home.

“Whether its your first time on two wheels or you’re a regular cyclist, let’s all enjoy the pleasure of riding a bike safely during this pandemic and beyond.”

Registration for Cycle Aurora begins May 1 and is open to all ages through May 31 via the Town’s ePlay app at aurora.ca/ePlay – then the fun begins, with the challenge itself running between June 5 and July 1.

“After you register, download the GooseChase app, complete missions and collect points,” says the Town. “Kids will love earning stickers for the missions they complete. Complete three missions to earn a prize.”

For more on the initiative, visit aurora.ca/cycleaurora or call the Town’s Special Events line at 905-726-4762.
