May 20 - Sep 2


In collaboration with the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada


Enjoy summer Sundays cycling along car-free roads, and experience the beauty of Canada’s Capital Region in a fun and environmentally friendly way.


Every Sunday morning during the summer, over 50 kilometres of roads in the heart of Ottawa and nearby Gatineau Park are closed to motor vehicles and open for cyclists, in-line skaters, runners and pedestrians.

This year, Bikedays participants can once again enjoy the mobile drinking water service, presented by PIPSC-Service Plus, which saved the equivalent of 9,376 (500 mL) bottles of water last year.
