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.

KNBC is much more than a bicycle club. Once the snow flies, members start hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, spinning, and more. There's usually coffee involved somewhere. Here's some of our members, out and about.

Winter Diversions

Movie Night

Join KNBC members at this movie!
Monday March 4 - Movie: The Bikes of Wrath, 7 pm Odeon Cineplex South Keys Cinema

Five Australians attempt to cycle 2600kms from Oklahoma to California in honour of the westward migration undertaken by 'The Grapes of Wrath's' Joad family. Through chance encounters with everyday Americans, the cyclists expand on the novel’s core themes of migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity. The group explores whether America has progressed since the book was written, discussing the wealth gap, immigration and the American Dream. The fascinating people they meet along the way reveal the enduring strength of human spirit despite the inequality and disenfranchisement which runs as deep today, as it did in Steinbeck’s seminal novel. The Bikes of Wrath is a unique, funny and insightful documentary filled with adventure, literature, music, and human connection.

The Plot: How can one speak truth to a tyrant and survive? The year is 1534 and nobles and commoners alike are turning their backs on ancient, even sacred beliefs and bowing to the wishes of King Henry VIII in his quest to break with the Catholic Church and marry Anne Boleyn. Many will sign the “Oath of Supremacy” in order to court the favour of a red headed bully. Sir Thomas Moore cannot in good conscience comply.
