Rideau Lakes Home

Thanks to all the hard working volunteers for another successful Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour.  Congratulations to all the participants who endured rain on Saturday and punishing head winds on Sunday.  See you next year!


What is the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour?

Every year, for the past 44 years, the Ottawa Bicycle Club has organized an annual cycle tour from Ottawa to Kingston and back over a two day weekend in early June.

This event attracts approximately 2000 riders from all over Ontario and Quebec and beyond. We offer the riders a number of route options and accommodation/meal selections. Route distances from Ottawa to Kingston vary from the 174Km 'Classic' to the 211Km 'Challenge'. An optional 102Km 'Century' can be had with a Perth start/finish.

The destination for riders is Queen's University where they enjoy great food and accommodation and, of course, the camaraderie and socializing at the end of the first day on the 'sunny' grounds of this historic university.
