About Us


Favourite Route Contest

OK .. we came up a bit short of 50 rides for our 50for50 event and so we think it would be great to have a contest to top us up to 50!

  • Got a special route you love?
  • A place you cycle to revive your spirits?
  • The route you always recommend to new cycling buddies?

Let us know and enter our contest!

We are looking for routes that are gravel to road, 50km (or less) to 150km (or more) and highlight the joys of riding through, around and near the cities and towns of the Rideau Lakes from Ottawa to Kingston.

Participate, get excited, get training and help us make this event one to remember!

See Contest Details on the RLCT webpage !

... think about what makes your favourite ride so special!

50 for 50 - What is it and why are we excited!

Since early this fall, a small dedicated group of OBC riders have been putting together a selection of the Best 50 rides between Ottawa and Kingston - to celebrate the OBC's 50th Anniversary and to honour the long tradition of the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour.

What can we do with these routes? Well - Ride Them of course!

We want everyone to get out there this cycling season and explore these routes and maybe find more and shake off the Covid Blues with some great riding  ... in what ever Covid restricted bubble we need!

Check out the details of this event on the RLCT webpage!
