Cycle the City

Explore Ottawa’s 600 kilometers of cycling trails. For the most picturesque views of the city, ride along the banks of the Ottawa River behind Parliament Hill and The Canadian Museum of History, or pedal out to Rideau Falls Park, which provides an overlook of Rideau Falls, where the Rideau and Ottawa rivers meet. Ride across the river to Green Island, which divides the falls and offers views of Ottawa’s old city hall.
