Ottawa Bicycle Club members without experience riding in an organized pack must attend a group riding clinic before participating in club rides. The clinics, held on selected Saturday and Sunday mornings from April to June, are led by experienced instructors who teach participants group riding techniques that help build confidence in riding with a group and in traffic. You do not need to preregister for the group riding clinic.
