The OBC will be hosting a group ride this coming Sunday, September 27th for Touring 1 and Touring 2. You must pre-register to participate (details are below). This will be our final Sunday Group Ride of the season - don’t miss out!
Wednesday, September 30, 7:00-8:30 pm
Const. Zulys will present the 529 Garage app, and talk about their ongoing efforts to curb bike theft in the city.
Registration for the OBC’s 3rd gravel ride is now open! You must pre-register to participate (details are below). We have at least two tour leaders for this ride, and we will break into smaller groups, based on rider experience and speed level.
We finally have news that the clothing ordered back in the spring is en route to Ottawa and will be available next week or so .. we will update as to how distribution will work and when it's ready for pick up.
The Club is pleased to offer our members a selection of regular kit items from Castelli’s new fall and winter cycling lineup at a special OBC discounted price from the MSRP. There are a wide variety of garments to choose from and we are offering both men’s and women’s designs on most items. Of note, we are providing the popular Gabba and Perfetto jerseys in men’s and women’s sizing for members as part of this offer.
Our first two OBC gravel rides have shown there’s a lot of enthusiasm for gravel riding in the club… we’ve had 20+ riders turn out for each ride. Let’s keep this going!
To make our gravel rides sustainable, and to grow the rides, we need a few gravel ride leaders to step up. This is not an onerous task, and we know you are out there!
Ottawa Bicycle Club (OBC) Fall 2020 Awareness Campaign: Ongoing ‘til Spring 2021
In the first two weeks of September, you will see 11”x17” OBC posters pinned on lampposts in various neighbourhoods in Ottawa. This is a project initiated by the OBC advocacy committee to highlight our core OBC services, including promoting safe group cycling, an advocacy position we agreed upon. More importantly, this awareness campaign is to uphold our visibility and position as a premier cycling club that uniquely offers a variety of cycling programs (albeit adversely impacted by COVID-19 in 2020).
The Ottawa Bicycle Club (OBC) is a not-for-profit organization*** that prides itself for being a premier cycling club in Canada, supporting high quality recreational and competitive cycling opportunities that promote a lifelong passion for the sport in cyclists of all ages.
The OBC is looking for young volunteers to inject new energy into its programs, piloting this volunteer opportunity in three OBC programs in 2020/21.
The OBC Office will be closed until December 31st. We will continue to be available via email at email@example.com and office hours continue to be maintained, but the doors will be closed through December 31st. If you need anything, please email.
As you may be aware, we're on the cusp of being able to offer sanctioned and insured cycling activities again. The Ontario Cycling Association has provided a mandatory waiver proforma for everyone participating in sanctioned cycling events, including touring, time trials, and races.
