This route starts by the canal, skips the touristic area of Dow's Lake and instead cuts straight to the Central Experimental Farm.
This hidden gem is a real treat for cycling enthusiasts looking to decompress after a long day. Keep pedalling past the Experimental Farm, after the climb you'll find yourself cruising through Carlington Woods. If you're feeling rowdy, there's a Bike Pump Track 🚵.
Although similar in length to the big loop around Ottawa, this route offers a more demanding workout with challenging climbs on the return. Plus, the path is less frequented, allowing you to ride at your own pace without interrupting others.
Ideal for a sunset ride after work, this route is the perfect way to unwind and recharge.
Bonus Track: If you want some crazy trails, head to Bruce Pit
🚵 Elevation Gain: 101 meters, this is flatter than most routes 👍
