September 22, 2015 (Ottawa, ON) – You are invited to join us on Nov. 20 as the Ottawa Cycling Celebration returns for 2015 with a new fall date and a star-studded lineup. There is plenty to celebrate this year, with Ottawa cyclists excelling at every level. Among the expected attendees of this year’s Cycling Celebration (pending any conflicts with training camps):

Mike Woods, who won races in Portugal and the U.S.,  and signed his first WorldTour contract for 2016 with Cannondale-Garmin.

Karol-Ann Canuel, two-time world TTT champion who in 2013 won races in Germany, Canada and the Czech Republic, and defended her world team time trail title at the road World Championships in Richmond, VA.

– Derek Gee, Connor Byway and Katherine Maine, who racked up some great junior performances at both the track and road world championships.

Matteo Dal-Cin, who won a stage and the overall standings at the international GP Saguenay.

The 2016 recipients of the National Capital Region Cycling Bursary.

The amazing women of The Cyclery-Opus cycling team.

The honorees for our annual cycling awards.

Like the past two editions, the event will feature a silent auction, and international cycling announcer Randy Ferguson will emcee the evening.

Last winter’s celebration raised more than $4,000 to help support our local cyclists. Ottawa’s cycling scene remains as vibrant as ever, hosting multiple events every week of the summer and gearing up for the 2016 National Road Championships. We hope you’ll come out and add to that support on Nov. 20!

The celebration will be held at the St. Anthony’s Banquet Hall in the heart of Ottawa’s Little Italy. Tickets will be available soon — stay tuned!
