Come Ride With Us!
Whether you just bought your first bike, have been biking on your own for a few months or are an experienced cyclist, the Ottawa Bicycle Club has something for you. The OBC is dedicated to providing high quality recreational and competitive cycling opportunities for cyclists of all ages.
We were not prepared for the high level of interest received in response to our call for ride leaders. As such, we are happy to offer additional training sessions. Please pre-register to save your spot! Thank you for your dedication and commitment to support your fellow club members.
As we await positive developments in our fight against COVID-19, we continue to explore ways to offer cycling opportunities for our members. The OBC's group riding can hopefully start in June, with a new look! Over the winter, club members have been working on growing the touring program to include more weekly rides of a much greater variety. In addition to the traditional club touring rides, we are adding women's rides, gravel/mixed surface rides, and sportif rides.
The Ottawa Bicycle Club will be suspending all our in-person group activities effective Saturday April 3rd, 2021 for the duration of the 28 day provincial shutdown period.
Since early this fall, a small dedicated group of OBC riders have been putting together a selection of the Best 50 rides between Ottawa and Kingston - to celebrate the OBC's 50th Anniversary and to honour the long tradition of the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour.
What can we do with these routes? Well - Ride Them of course!
We want everyone to get out there this cycling season and explore these routes and maybe find more and shake off the Covid Blues with some great riding ... in what ever Covid restricted bubble we need!
Check out the details of this event on the RLCT webpage!
We are pleased to announce that the Ottawa Bicycle Club’s 50th anniversary season membership registration page is now open. To join or renew your membership in the OBC for 2021, please visit our membership page.
