Sunday, March 18th: 30km ride (10am)

We’re still in “off-season” but it’s sure looking like awesome cycling weather, so there’s no reason to sit indoors. This route is only 29.7km but if you want to cut off some distance, you can make it about 20km by taking a shortcut at Danforth Rd.  And hey, if you want to go longer, you could freestyle it and extend the route at the northern end.

Start time: 10:00am
Start location: The park on Carlise St. between Ewing and Westwood
Route: Town and Country route map here.

If you might ride, let us know. Hopefully the forces of nature will be kind and work out for us. Let us know if you’re thinking of 30k or 20k. (or even longer)


  1. I will be in Ottawa for the weekend so I will not be joining the ride. Something tells me that the original plan of Spring skiing in Gatineau Park is not going to happen either, so I might have to bring the bike with me.

  2. I would like to join this ride as a new member. Will it be okay to join and give some one on the leadership my registration on Sunday or would it be better to drop off the paper work in advance to an executive member?

    • You can certainly bring your membership forms along with your payment to the beginning of the ride on Sunday. Please make sure that you have completed both the Application and the OCA waiver form. I should be there. You could give it to either Randy, Anita (me), Vivian or Paul. One or more of the executive members will be there I’m sure. Looking forward to meeting you!

  3. Hi Anita, looking forward to my first ride of the season with the club.
    I, like some others, have not picked up my jersey yet. Any chance you could bring it Sun? thanks

  4. We’re new and would like to join the ride. We noted that another new rider was told to bring the membership sheets and their money to the ride so we will do the same.

  5. Looking forward to riding with everyone tomorrow. We are looking strong this year with close to 50 members already and it is only March!
    We are going to look amazing with many of us wearing our new jerseys.

    See you all tomorrow.

    Every time I see an adult on a bicycle I no longer despair for the future of the human race.

    • Sorry, but plans have changed. And no it has nothing to do with too much St. Paddy’s day!! We’d like to join the group soon so will be looking for the next posted ride.
