Ottawa Ride Guide - Explore Ottawa, Ontario by Bike

With so much to see and do, getting around the capital city by bike is the perfect way to get to know the city more intimately, see the top attractions, and have a great day out, all on two wheels. 

A truly wonderful city to explore by bike, use the Ottawa Ride Guide as your starting point to explore more of downtown, visit vibrant neighbourhoods, ride riverside off-road recreational trails and a mix of on-road bike paths.
