RLCT Thanks

Wow, what a weekend!  The OBC hopes everyone had a great ride and made good memories.  Thank you for making this weekend one to remember. We look forward to seeing you next year.

RLCT Weather

Mother Nature seems to be blessing us with fantastic sunny riding weather this weekend.  Visit the stops along the way to stay hydrated. The weather can change at any time, please remember to bring rain gear and cold weather options in case Mother Nature changes her mind. Enjoy the ride!  

RLCT Transportation

Less than 24 hours and we will be cycling to Kingston!  Just a reminder, that riders are responsible for their own transportation back to Ottawa or Perth if cyclists chose not to ride. The SAG option is available for those who are cycling.  There are bus (Greyhound Canada) and train (VIA) departures scheduled throughout the day Sunday. 

RLCT Pitstops

Need a pitstop along the route?  There are many community groups, general stores and OBC options available to you on all 4 routes.  The OBC requests that you do not stop at the tree nursery at the corner of Eagleson and Flewellyn - the washroom and parking lot is reserved for their customers and they are quite busy on weekends in June. Please respect private property and have a great sunny weekend riding.
