Cycling has been a consistent event in the Canada Summer Games, starting in Halifax – Dartmouth back in 1969 for the first ever Canada Summer Games.


Individual Time Trial

The time trial against the clock is done individually. Each rider sets out alone on the course, one minute apart. The rider with the best time against the clock is the winner of the event. 

Road Race

The road race is an event that is held on a road surface. Riders set out on the road course simultaneously and race over a pre-determined distance. The first rider to cross the finish line is the winner.     


Like the road race, the criterium is held on a road surface and the riders set out simultaneously. But the criterium is staged on a short, closed-off course that varies between one and two kilometres. The riders are required to complete multiple laps, and this makes for a spectacular, crowd-pleasing event.


Each province and territory may enter a team of up to five males and five females. Cyclists must hold valid Cycling Canada licenses.

From Camping to Hiking at Birds Hill Provincial Park
Birds Hill Provincial Park

Birds Hill Provincial Park is the official venue for the cycling, triathlon and open water swimming competitions at next year’s 2017 Canada Summer Games. The Park is located just a short drive from Winnipeg.

With approximately 30km of walking trails and over 7km of paved bicycle trails, it is no surprise that hiking and cycling are two of the most popular activities on visitors’ to-do lists. Visitors can also spend their day swimming in the man-made lake or enjoying the warm Manitoban sunshine on the beach’s sandy shore.
