Self-guided cycle from the east-end village of Cumberland to downtown Ottawa along mostly flat low-traffic roads, pathways, and bike lanes. Along the way, sample local treats and craft beer, enjoy the views of the Ottawa River, the Rideau Canal, and the many landmarks as you cycle into the heart of the capital.
Distance: 38km / approx. 2.5 hours of cycling
Minimum age: 19 yrs
PRIVATE GROUP? Advertised dates are open to the public, but other dates are possible for private groups upon request. Contact Us.
Each tour departure will be confirmed once a minimum of 8 people have signed up for that particular date. Participants will share the transfer/bike shuttle services with other group members to a maximum of 12 people in a mini bus (including the tour host and driver). Due to the self-guided nature of the tour, participants will not necessarily bike together and are free to cycle at their own pace. We simply ask that they complete the tour by the designated time. Those looking for a completely private tour should contact us at [email protected] for pricing and availability.
Surface is mostly paved with some dirt and gravel sections. We recommend a hybrid bicycle or lightweight mountain bike. Road bike is ok – especially if choosing the Rockcliffe Parkway instead of the gravel path along river. Ideally, cyclists should be comfortable sharing the road with drivers (on the road coming out of Cumberland) but we can adjust the drop off point for those who are less comfortable.
One-way passenger and bicycle shuttle from downtown Ottawa to Cumberland (standard size bikes only)
Food samples at three locations
Beer samples at three breweries (alcohol-free options available)
Maps, route information, and turn-by-turn directions using offline voice navigation (bring a smart phone)
Pick-up and same day delivery of beer purchases made during the tour
Between 9:15am and 10am, depending on bicycle rentals and pickup location (downtown bicycle rental shop or secondary central location). Exact time and location will be confirmed on your tour voucher.
Flora Hall Brewing at 37 Flora Street (near Bank & Flora). Expected end time between 3:30p.m. and 4:30 p.m., depending on individual cycling pace. Any beer purchases will be delivered to this location by 5:00pm. Rental bikes will be collected from this location no later than 5:00pm.
OPTION: Shuttle Only
Subject to space, we can shuttle passengers and bicycles to Cumberland or Orleans with the group. Shuttle Only service does not include any maps, emergency assistance, tours, food or beverages. Contact us for details / to book your spot.
