32nd Annual Mini GO Ride

May 25 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

Come for a scenic, fun, non-competitive bicycle ride that is also a fundraiser for United Way of Thunder Bay (UWTB). Ride through country roads starting and ending at the Neebing Roadhouse at the corner of Hwy 61 and 20th Side Road. The bike routes will be primarily on back roads with 4 different routes, a short, medium, long and extra long route. The distances are approximately: 10, 20, 50, and 100 km.


WHAT: The Mini GO Ride (MGR) is a fun, non competitive, fund-raising bike tour of approximately 10, 20, 50, or 100km on the back-country roads of Thunder Bay and Oliver-Paipoonge Township. After the ride, you are welcome inside the Neebing Roadhouse and visit with others while ordering from their menu, listening to live music, and winning draw prizes.

WHEN: Saturday May 25, 2024. There are various start times depending on your distance.

10 and 20 km start anytime between 10:45-11:00am

50km starts anytime between 9:30-10:00am

100km start anytime between 8:15-9:00am

NOTE: That you may start anytime between the times listed above for your distance. We are not having “mass” starts where everyone starts at the same time.

WHERE/ROUTES: Meet at the Neebing Roadhouse Parking lot. All the routes start and end at the Neebing and begin by heading north on the 20th Side Road. All routes are marked with temporary white paint showing arrows at each turn. The last arrow will be marked with a number which indicates the distance to the next turn. Each arrow has a signature marking of an upsidedown letter “u” at the bottom of the arrow.

OTHER PERKS (in addition to riding on our lovely back country roads with old and newly made friends)

REGISTER ONLINE EARLY: The first 50 to register online will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the Neebing Roadhouse.

PROMO CODES: Your organization/club might have a promo code. If you don’t know it, feel free to ask us or your organization’s leaders. If there is no promo code, then ask us nicely and we might set one up for you.

FREE ATTENDANCE DRAW PRIZES: of various shapes and sizes will be given out after the ride to riders who registered before May 22 and at the Neebing Roadhouse at the time of the draws.

MUNCHIES ON ROUTE: We don’t want you to starve, and we’ll try our best to have munchies and refreshment for everyone on the route.

MUSIC: And it will be live!!

PARTICIPATION CHALLENGE: The group with the most registered will win extra prizes, so gather up your friends and don’t forget to enter your group name when you sign up. We allow one change per person should someone decide to “jump-ship”.

GREAT EATS: Now this still is a perk, but you’ll have to pay for it. The Neebing Roadhouse will have food for you to order from their menu.

This is a rain or shine event. If the weather is real bad, then we’ll just have to go into the Neebing Roadhouse a bit earlier. The music, attendance prizes, and menu will still be there.


Children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult.


Online registration continues right up until the start of the ride – May 25, 2024

Or you can register at the event in person.

However, you would be doing us such a big favour if you register online before the last day.

OUR CHARITY – United Way of Thunder Bay (UWTB)

For 60 years, the United Way of Thunder Bay has been working to fulfill their mission “to improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action”.

Having evolved from their roots as a “fundraiser” to a community convenor, United Way of Thunder Bay brings together partners from business, government, labour, service providers, community leaders, and residents to create opportunities for a better life for everyone across Northwestern Ontario.

They are most grateful to be aligned with the Mini GO Ride in 2024, and thank you for your support!
