What you'll do
Bring your own bike, and your own beverage (or try our homemade cocktail), and let's get to know bot one another and Ottawa a little better. We'll start off in Wes' backyard garden, and then choose one of a couple of routes towards city centre, depending where beautiful stuff seems to be happening. Chances are that we'll end up sharing a drink in some local establishment, so be sure to bring your helmet and (if night time) your lights with you. The biking itself will be about 2 hours long (10-12km), and require riding up some gradual inclines, but you don't have to be an avid rider to enjoy this experience.
We are creative types, local food enthusiasts, teachers, performers, and individuals who are overall well-connected to various networks in Ottawa and Gatineau. We love art, plants, and . . . oh ya, bikes! Your guide will be Wes, Tricia, or Louis, who will take you from a local garden in Little Italy, though various neighbourhoods, parks, paths, and streets to places you have seen and places you will be glad to discover. They will feed you local trivia for your mind, maple Mojitos for your spirit, snacks for your tastebuds, a soundtrack for ears/soul, and likely a joke or two for your heart!
