Organization: GoBiking.ca – Cycling in Ottawa-Gatineau
Timeline for Completion: Ongoing
The ride from Ottawa to Stittsville in the region’s west end is an interesting one because it makes use of three different trail systems, each with its own unique characteristics.
The entire ride takes place over relatively flat terrain, and depending on your departure point in Ottawa, will probably involve a total distance between 50 and 60 kilometres (there and back) . Stittsville is a worthwhile destination insofar that it offers a number of convenient places to stop for a relaxing meal, or to replenish your supply of refreshments for your return trip. Stittsville also represents the outer limit of Ottawa’s urban sprawl (as of 2008). Cycling beyond Stittsville puts you in the grey zone between going out for a local ride, and long distance bicycle touring.
