Looking for a bicycle club in the National Capital Region? The Kanata-Nepean Bicycle Club is a
volunteer-based, non-profit organization for social, recreational bicycle touring. We emphasize
the adventure and fitness aspects of cycling without undue emphasis on performance and/or
competition. We ride from Kanata Town Centre and Centrepointe and a variety of remote locations
to picturesque towns mostly to the west of Ottawa.

all about, so be sure also to check out our schedule of tours on our

You will become more confident and have increased awareness on the road! You will learn what being a vehicle under the Highway Traffic Act looks like. This course is designed for cyclists to increase their abilities and their knowledge of how to ride effectively through all forms of traffic infrastructure. Participants will gain confidence and competence on both urban and rural roadways. You will learn the rules, but more importantly how to apply them defensively, to be safer in all situations.
