Capital Vélo Fest Bike Rally

Ride in teams of 3-5 people in a friendly challenge through the streets of Ottawa along bike paths and low traffic volume streets. Riders follow a route searching for the answers to quirky questions and exploring the hidden gems of interesting sights and lesser known cycling routes in Ottawa. The route is about 15km and you ride at your own pace with your team as you discover little known fascinating corners of the city.

Bring your own roadworthy bike, bike helmet and a cell phone/camera (some rally questions require a photo answer) and get set to see a side of Ottawa you may not know!


Register by 4pm Thursday October 17!

The cost for registering for the bike rally is only $25 plus a minimum donation of $10. Your registration includes full rally participation and a contribution to provide safe shelter and training to homeless teenage girls and young women in Uganda.
