OBC Learn to Ride Program Registration Open

Exciting changes coming to the OBC Learn to Ride Program for 2016! Registration now open.

While our young riders turned to other sports during the off season, we have been working diligently on bringing an already successful cycling development program to its next stage of evolution.

Starting with a new name, the OBC Youth Program will have a new structure to better meet the needs of our athletes and families, while striving to improve the quality and delivery of our coaching.

RLCT Update

Registration opened February 14th and to date over 850 riders are registered. A great start to the 45th RLCT Tour!

It's time now to focus on the volunteers: those invaluable people who make the Tour happen.

Finger Lakes Tour June 24 – 26, 2016

The Finger Lakes (New York) area is known for its quiet, rolling roads with picturesque scenes in every direction. We will be staying at Inn at the Finger Lakes in Auburn, NY for our Friday & Saturday, June 24 & 25th weekend. It's a short 4 hour drive from Ottawa. The cycling routes offer panoramic views of lakes Owasco, Skaneateless, and Otisco. While many roads are quiet, they also tend to be quite hilly, similar to riding in the Gatineaus.

Westport Tour (almost full)

The Westport Tour is almost full. The three remaining rooms at the Cove Inn have one queen size bed in each. Rooms with two beds are all booked.
