This was my second time doing this bike tour. It is a great way to see the outskirts of the city, the canal and bike into Quebec as well. I would do it a third time if the opportunity presents.

This was my most favorite activity...

This was my most favorite activity during my Ottawa trip. The bike ride down the canal and past a handful of the city's sights was most informative and went at a pace that truly allowed the bikers to take in the scenery. The guide was fabulous and I can't wait to return to Ottawa and do the same exact bike ride again, that's how fabulous it was! Highly, highly recommend it!
