Cycle Oakville, Halton Environmental Network, Ecopartners and Whole Foods Market (Oakville) are hosting a Black History Bike Tour for individuals and families who are interested in a leisurely tour of historic sites that help tell the story of Oakville’s role in the Underground Railroad. 

A 10-stop guided tour will begin at 10 a.m. at Taste of Colombia on Bronte Road. A shorter family bike tour will begin at Whole Foods Market on Cornwall Road at 10:45 a.m. and will feature a kids’ ride and face painting. 

Both tour groups will combine at Whole Foods for a BBQ lunch, then continue touring the remaining historic sites before reaching the final stop at the Emancipation Picnic. Participants will also be able to tour the Underground Railroad Exhibition at Erchless Estate.
