- Length: 9 kilometres
- Hours: 8 am to 4 pm
This is a great way to experience the beauty of Canada’s Capital Region in a fun, safe and environmentally friendly way. Since 1970, the NCC has hosted Sunday Bikedays, allowing cyclists to experience the Capital’s scenic parkways car-free. Today, the program provides about 20 kilometres of parkways to hundreds of thousands of visitors, who enjoy seeing the Capital Region from a different perspective and in a fun and environmentally friendly way. The program has been replicated in many other cities around the globe.
