About The Ottawa Bicycle Club
The Ottawa Bicycle Club (OBC) was founded in 1882. We are the oldest and one of the largest bicycle clubs in Canada. The OBC offers a range of cycling programs that appeal to a range of cyclists from novice to experienced riders and racers. Events vary from relaxed country tours with picnic lunches to fast-action road, track and cyclocross racing.
The Ottawa Bicycle Club’s racing program supports youth and new athlete development at the grassroots level with the objective of feeding provincial and national high performance systems. The club’s overall development program is one of the best examples of a community-based program in Canada.
