Cycling on Parkways in Ottawa and Gatineau Park

Alcatel-Lucent Sunday Bikedays takes place Sunday mornings, from Victoria Day weekend to Labour Day weekend. Over 50 kilometres of parkways in Ottawa and Gatineau Park are reserved for cyclists, in-line skaters, runners and walkers.
Experience the beauty of Canada’s Capital Region in a fun and environmentally friendly way. Take the parkways and cycle along the Rideau Canal or the Ottawa River, or through beautiful Gatineau Park.
The program is sponsored by Alcatel-Lucent, and runs mainly through the support of volunteers.
Note: Scooter-type power-assisted bikes are not allowed on the parkways while they are closed for Alcatel-Lucent Sunday Bikedays.
