Two fundraising cycling events may impact traffic in and around Dundas, but won’t require any temporary road closures, according to the City of Hamilton.

Ride to Conquer Cancer comes to Dundas and Flamborough June 11 and 12, then ALS Revolution Ride hits Valley Town and Ancaster roads Sunday, Sept. 25.

“They are ‘moving lane occupancies’ with the assistance of Hamilton Police at all controlled intersections,” said city spokesperson Michelle Shantz.

Several Ride to Conquer Cancer routes pass through Dundas and Flamborough June 11 from 10 a.m. to noon and 12:30 to 5 p.m., and again June 12 from 6 to 10 a.m.

Affected streets both days include: Brock Road, Harvest Road, Rock Chapel Road, Valley Road, York Road, Olympic Drive and Cootes Drive. Westoby Ice Surface on Olympic is identified as a “cheering station.”

The September ALS Revolution ride includes two routes, one 40 kilometres and one 90 km, both starting and finishing on Hatt Street at Shawn & Ed Brewing.

Both routes travel through Dundas to Cootes Drive and through Ainslie Wood to Wilson Street in Ancaster and Jerseyville Road, Shaver Road, Book Road, Butter Road, Fiddlers Green Road, and back to Dundas through Ainslie Wood residential streets to the Cootes Drive multi-use trail. The exact route through Dundas was not confirmed by deadline.
