Cycle to Aylmer and Beyond

Cycle to Aylmer and Beyond

(Theme 1 – Transportation, Theme 8 – Health, Theme 9 – Recreation)

Organization: – Cycling in Ottawa-Gatineau

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing


The ride to Aylmer takes place on a good quality pathway and offers some very interesting views of the Ottawa River and the DeschĂȘnes Rapids.

From downtown Gatineau (Hull sector), it is a matter on getting on the Voyageurs Pathway and heading west. If you are coming from the Ontario side of the river, it is necessary to cross one of the downtown bridges or the Champlain Bridge in the west. The Champlain, Alexandra, and Portage Bridges all have bicycle laneways. Of these bridges, the Champlain Bridge offers the easiest way to connect to the Voyageurs Pathway. A return trip from downtown Ottawa to the Aylmer would probably be around 30 to 35 kilometres (a little more if you return via the Pionniers Pathway).
