Building a Cycling Community

We’re all here just to have fun! This event occurs during Sarnia Bike Week on Sunday June 9th

What is a Slow Roll? It’s a large group bike ride with a twist – the point is not to race but to relax with good company and enjoy a leisurely ride. Slow Rolls have become popular in cities across North America because the rides appeal to a diverse audience and do not require specialized equipment or training. Spandex can be left at home and everyone is welcome!


The Bluewater International Granfondo’s (BIG) Slow Roll is a large, free, and inclusive community 10km bike ride dedicated to contributing to the growth of bicycle culture in the Sarnia Lambton area. Founded by BIG and organized locally by volunteers, the goal is to further cycling not only as a health initiative, but also to help enhance Sarnia’s image as a cycling community.


The BIG Slow Roll is open to all regardless of age, experience, ability, or type of bike. With a slow pace and volunteer squad that keep riders safe and social, it is more than just a bike ride – it is a conduit for bringing people from all walks of life together and connecting our community.


This year the ride will start at 2pm at Centennial Park on Sunday, June 9th .


The ride will feature a unique route infused with music from live musicians along the way. Starting in the old boat launch parking lot in Centennial Park on Harbour Road. Through Point Edward by way of Venetian, through Canatara Park. There will be one stop to regroup at Canatara Park before returning down Cathcart to Colborne and finally along Exmouth back to end at Paddy’s and Point Brewing Company for music and a post-ride BBQ.


Point Brewing Company will be donating $1 from every 20oz pint and hot dog sold to Big Brothers and Big Sisters between 2:30 and 4:30pm!


Our partners, nuSarnia, BackHome Coffee, Rotary Club of Sarnia and Friends of the St. Clair River and many community volunteers help to keep the BIG Slow Roll free for everyone!
