Like the past two editions, the event will feature a silent auction, and international cycling announcer Randy Ferguson will emcee the evening. And we have listened to your feedback: our host venue will be offering an improved list of menu options!

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.
