July 29, 2023
The 50th edition of the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour is rescheduled for July 29-30, 2023!
(Earlier date of June 10-11, postponed.)
Passing through picturesque countryside between Ottawa and Kingston, the RLCT attracts cyclists from all over North America for an unforgettable cycling experience. With up to 1500 cyclists, this two-day event is one of the largest such events in Canada.  Cyclists start in either Ottawa or Perth and ride to Kingston on the Saturday, then return on the Sunday with an overnight stay at Queen’s University.

There are four routes with one-way lengths of 106km to 220km.  The routes go through the scenic countryside of the Rideau Valley passing many picturesque lakes and historic towns. Included in the tour are luggage transfer to and from Kingston, facilities at official rest stops, mobile repair services, police supervision at major intersections, and other support on the supported routes.

Spread the word and join the Ottawa Bicycle Club in its largest and best known event!
