Bike a thon

Out-Spok’n for Affordable Housing

Our annual bike-a-thon is held in late June every year in Elmira.

This event has options for everyone to participate; a family-friendly 14 or 28 km ride on the Kissing Bridge Trail, leaving from Elmira Mennonite Church heading towards either the West Montrose or Wallenstein.

For more serious cyclists, a 75km early morning ride leaves St. Jacobs Mennonite church, bikes to the Shand Dam on Belwood Lake for a mid-morning break, and then returns to Elmira in time for lunch.


Non-biker’s can still participate by going for a walk or run on the Kissing Bridge Trail.

Everyone is invited to enjoy a BBQ lunch after their ride/walk.

There’s no cost for the event but everyone is encouraged to raise support by having friends, family members, or local businesses sponsor their ride. All donations will receive a charitable receipt. Funds raised will go towards the construction of new affordable housing in Waterloo Region.

Out-Spok’n IX will be Saturday June 22, 2019
