Ride with a team of 3-6 people on a fun-filled day of cycling through the streets of Ottawa.  Discover what makes Ottawa a great cycling city by exploring a guided cycling route along low-traffic streets and bike paths.  Decipher the route, search for answers to quirky clues and quizzes, and test your skills in a friendly challenge with other rally-riders!

Three rallies have been scheduled for Saturdays July 13, August 17 and September 14, starting at 8 Locks’ Flat restaurant.  (If it is pouring rain on the day the rally, the event will be postponed to the Sunday the day after).  Each route will be approximately 20km in length, and the ride is suitable for riders of all ages who can ride the distance and safely navigate on city streets. It’s a great way for a family, or group of friends or colleagues to see interesting city sights on bikes!

Registration includes a light breakfast, snacks along the route at a checkpoint, food at the finish, prizes and a day of fun!
