Grand Prix Volunteers Needed

Grand Prix Volunteers Needed

Eclipse Road Frame as Volunteer Door Prize

As always, we hope that lots of club members will participate in the Grand Prix as competitors. After all, that's what the race is for. But we need volunteers to make it happen, so if you're not racing, please consider helping continue the tradition of making this one of the most popular and successful cycling events in Canada.

Railway Crossing Guidelines

In a short span of 2 weeks, we have had 3 spills at railway crossings already this year. Therefore, this would seem to be a good time to review some guidelines on the subject. The OBC Railway Crossing Guidelines are now available under the education section along with the complete set of Group Riding Techniques.

New Ottawa Bicycle Club Website

Welcome to the newly redesigned website of the Ottawa Bicycle Club. While our previous site has served us well for a number of years, it was time to freshen up the look. For the most part, the actual content has remained the same and the navigation panel on the left hand side of every page can still be used to navigate to the different areas within the site.
