TORONTO — Nine Brazilian cyclists looking to practise for the Pan Am Games had a run-in with police after they ended up on a Toronto highway Sunday morning.

Police say the cyclists — who were wearing their team uniforms — were spotted on the shoulder of the Don Valley Parkway around 10 a.m.

Officers who were in the area to enforce special Pan Am Games high occupancy lanes quickly reached the group and escorted them to a safer route.

Det.-Sgt. Devin Kealey says the cyclists were trying to fit in a one-hour training session and thought the stretch of highway would suit their needs.

He says there was little traffic on the usually busy highway, and no one was hurt. Nobody was charged.

Kealey says the group was "very co-operative."
