This bike tour is perfect for families and those wanting a leisurely way to see Ottawa. Most of the route is on designated bike paths that take you to some of Ottawa’s cultural and natural highlights. You’ll see Rideau Falls, cycle the Rideau Canal path, cross the river into Gatineau, plus see the War Memorial, Parliament Hill, National Art Gallery, Museum of History, and more.

What to Expect
Starting downtown, you will first visit the War Memorial. A leisurely ride on the Rideau Canal Pathway will give you a beautiful view of Ottawa’s downtown and popular Byward market neighborhood. As you continue cycling, you will visit Rideau Hall, Rideau Falls, and cross a bridge to visit the beautiful province of Quebec. Cycling back through Voyageurs and Ottawa River pathways (or Sir John A. MacDonald Parkway), you will see and hear more of Ottawa's beauty and major attractions including the Parliament Hill, National Art Gallery and Museum of History. Locks and Bytown Museum will be the last attractions that you will see during this short and fun tour.
