What you'll do

Get on a bike and discover with us Ottawa's Nature & Waterways, Neighbourhoods, and local hangouts without leaving the city! You will discover some very impressive natural sights, and go places you probably wouldn't find on our own. This well balanced bike tour features 8 main stops: Hog's Back Falls, Chaudiere Falls, the Rideau Canal Locks, The Ottawa Arboretum, the Experimental Farm, the War Museum, and the Holocaust Monument. We also visit the charming neighbourhoods of the Glebe and Little Italy, and stop at a local brewpub called Beyond the Pale for a refreshing beer or enjoy a snack or drink at the quality bakery cafe next door. Everyone has been loving the bikes we provide - they are super comfortable and so much fun to ride.If you've never taken a bike tour before, you are more than welcome. This tour is a little more of a local experience than most!

Shea, Diego & Fitz

We are Shea & Diego and we'd like to introduce you to our company Fitz Tours. We offer 2 highly-rated experiences led by ourselves and the "Fitz Family" - this means you may be helped out by Veronique or Christian and hosted by James or Cecily! They both have unique, friendly characters and are world travellers themselves. We've all combined our passion and knowledge to offer top-notch bike experiences here in Ottawa - the kind we look for when we go traveling ourselves. We keep the groups small, the content upbeat, and hope you leave feeling like you were hosted by a 'friend for the day' - or longer. We'll show you the best art, architecture, urban development, nature, and local events & festivals, but we also aren't afraid to show you the grit, imperfections, and realities of what living in Ottawa is like!

Where you'll be

We ride the charming Glebe neighbourhood to take us in behind the Carlton University campus, full of scenic spots along the river. After spotting some street art, we arrive at the powerful Hog's Back falls, a little known but must-see waterfall! After we ride along the canal to the picturesque Arboretum, then we visit the Experimental Farm - yes a farm in the middle of the city! Then its break time at a local craft brewery or bakery/cafe!
