Ottawa is a cyclist’s delight, with over 180km of bike paths through the city. Whether for travel or for recreation, there are paths that are scenic, historic, peaceful and serene. In Centretown, more dedicated bike lanes are being installed, such as the one along Laurier Avenue, making sharing the road safer and healthier for everyone.

On Sundays, bikers can cycle along the beautiful Sir John A. MacDonald and Rockcliffe Parkways along the Ottawa River, Colonel By Drive along the Canal, among other scenic routes, all closed to motor vehicles from late May to early September, 9am—1pm.

Don’t have a bike? No problem. There are all sorts of rental bikes located all around the city for you to pick up, ride and drop off.
