The Big Loop – Riding Around Ottawa

The Big Loop – Riding Around Ottawa

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

Organization: – Cycling in Ottawa-Gatineau

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing


The “big loop” is an informal name for a ride which makes use of a series of pathways to go completely around Ottawa’s core. It runs along some of the more interesting paths in the city, including those which follow parts of the Rideau River, the Rideau Canal, the Ottawa River, goes behind the Parliament Buildings, and passes through the Experimental Farm as well as several large parks.

The big loop is a reasonably long ride and covers a total of distance of 35 to 40 kilometres. It stretches from west of Woodroffe to the Rideau River in the east, and, most part, it is fairly flat.
