My Clubs and Activities

Cycling Clubs

Since my biggest activity is cycling, I’m of course, a member of multiple clubs and organizations:

Ottawa Bicycle Club The OBC is my “home club”. One of largest cycling club’s in Canada, with over 1,000 members, the OBC offers touring, gravel riding, time trials, and various events like the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour.

Kanata Nepean Bicycle Club The Kanata Nepean Bicycle Club is a purely recreational touring club - I do most of my touring rides with the KNBC.

Cross Canada Cycle Touring Society The Cross Canada Cycle Touring Society is another purely recreational touring club - They have chapters in British Columbia as well as Ottawa. They organize a lot of away tours, including many outside of North America. My wife and I do most of our multi-day “away” cycle touring with the CCCTS.

Ottawa Rambling Club The Ottawa Rambling Club is one of two hiking clubs my wife belongs to. I joined the ORC to do occasional hikes.
