Sunday Rides

Our regular local Sunday rides usually depart from Billings Bridge Shopping Centre(corner of Bank and Riverside) from early April until late fall. Parking is only permitted in the section facing Riverside Drive between the two exits going to Riverside Drive as indicated on this map.

A range of touring distances and destinations is planned for each Sunday departure. Full schedule with departure locations, destinations, distances and maps are in the Club Calendar and at the bottom of this page.

The OBC weekly rides are members-only events. To ensure that only members take part, ride coordinators and group leaders will ask you to show a valid membership card at the start of each ride. Make sure to have your card handy, and enjoy the ride!

Touring Groups

We ride in organized groups of similar cycling ability with an experienced volunteer tour leader and we stick together. Our destination points will include a store where snacks and drinks can be purchased for the lunch/snack stop before the return ride. Some riders may wish to bring their own lunch/snack with them.

Group Riding Clinics

New members are encouraged to take our free Group Riding Clinics on their first outing regardless of your cycling skills. This Clinic is an overview of how we structure our tours and provides basics on bicycle fit, maintenance, what to bring, how to ride together and obeying traffic regulations, as well as the philosophy, responsibilities, benefits and safety issues of group riding with the OBC.
