What you'll do
This will be up to a two-hour biking experience around Ottawa and Gatineau! You are one of the select 5% of visitors to the Nation's Capital who will enjoy the sights and sounds from two wheels. Much of this exclusive itinerary is not accessible by motor coach or car. We access the recreational pathways directly from our bike path site starting on the World Heritage Rideau Canal, proceeding south to Dow's Lake, Hartwell Lockstation, Rideau Falls, the Arboretum, Central Experimental Farm and Ottawa River. Our favourite stops are the two waterfalls within the urban core; Hog's Back and Rideau. From the Rideau Falls it is a short pedal into the residence of the Governor General and then the village of Rockcliffe Park with numerous mansions, embassy residences, mature gardens and trees. The history behind some of these sights and homes is unique. Views over the river along the Rockliffe parkway are exquisite.
Harry, Marit, Karen and Bill (RentABike on the Rideau Canal, Ottawa) has been part of the cycling community since 1976. They love cycling the bike paths and have spent most of their professional lives and raised their families here in Canada's Capital. We have post-secondary degrees in architecture, politics, history and art that compliments our passion for the four season outdoors! We love biking and we offer a unique and authentic experience on two wheels. Plus, we can show you the best hidden coffee shops and places to find a quick snack along the way. Welcome to our community.
