Vermont Weekend

Vermont weekend (Aug 4 to 7) 2017 - registration closed

The Vermont Weekend has been a very popular tour, with as many as 150 members spending the long August civic holiday weekend exploring the roads of the state from a base in one its small colleges.  In recent years we've been staying in more upscale accommodation and there are more competing tours on the OBCs calendar, so the participation has dropped, but there is still nowhere else within a day's drive where the cycling is as good..

Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu

Registration Closed

This is the fourth year that we will be returning to the Auberge Harris in Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu for our Friday, Saturday, & Sunday weekend tour – July 28-30, 2017 – This year a bit later than last year due to conflicting dates with other tours – OBC and non-OBC.  Once again, we will be hosted at the Auberge by Mme Boucher-Boutin who will provide us with facilities for early arrival on Friday and late departure on Sunday for those who want to get in extra rides at the start or finish of our tour.

Finger Lakes

Friday June 23 - Sunday June 25, 2017

 

We will be staying at Inn at the Finger Lakes in Auburn, NY which is about a 4 hour drive from Ottawa.

The cycling routes offer beautiful views of the nearby lakes. While many roads are quiet, they also tend to be hilly, similar to riding in Gatineau park. The nearby town of Skaneateless is a great place to enjoy coffee, bakery goods or ice cream by the lake.  

Northumberland

The annual OBC tour to Coburg is once again scheduled for the May long weekend at the Breakers Motel, we check in on Friday and usually finish on Monday morning with easy quick rides before heading home. Previous year's trips have been a great success, with sunny days, cool evenings and the BBQ at the ready for Saturday and Sunday evening meals.

Westport

Westport offers ideal terrain for Spring Training. Routes heading North to villages such as Maberly, Lanark , Sharbot Lake or Elphyn travel along mostly quiet but hilly roads. You can also enjoy more undulating terrain by heading East toward Brockville through small villages such as Athens, Delta and Lyndherst.
