SOMETIMES AMBITIOUS, ALWAYS SOCIAL

Looking for an easy-going bicycle club in the Canada's National Capital Region? 

The Kanata-Nepean Bicycle Club (KNBC) emphasizes the social, recreational, adventure, and health aspects of cycling. We like to cycle in loose groups, and offer rides that range from slow and easy, to quite fast, with lots in between. While many of our rides tend to take place in and around west-end Ottawa, we have members from across the entire region.
