BIKE TOUR: Riveting Rivers — The evolving role of our waterways in city-building

Photo:  Rideau Falls

Pump up your bike tires and join me for this year’s Jane’s Walk … on a bike! Our ride—on dedicated bike paths—will start at the Rockcliffe Pavilion on the Ottawa River, continue to the Rideau Falls, and end at the Adawe Crossing over the Rideau River at the former Rideau Tennis Club. Along the way, we will be joined by three special expert guests who will remind us of the key roles the rivers have played in our city’s history and evolution, and who will point to exciting developments that will allow us to better appreciate and enjoy their beauty.
