(May 2, 2022 update)
Here is the 2022 overview of the roads, closed for motorised traffic in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. Note this year there are several changes such as Queen elizabeth Drive open 24 hrs a day for active transportation only and Colonel By Drive not participating this year. (This may have to do with too much traffic taking Main Street in Old Ottawa East instead).
Sources: go to the much improved NCC website here: NCC Weekend Bikedays, presented by Nokia – National Capital Commission (ncc-ccn.gc.ca) for the latest on the Parkways.
Not sure where to go next?
I have a few maps online with 20 km loops that mostly follow multi use pathways. Remember, there are many more bike routes than just the parkways. Ottawa – Gatineau has an extensive network of safe cycling paths, called multi use pathways.
If you need a fridge magnet with the appropriate theme, order them here on Etsy: blue bike fridge magnet (No commission for me). Enjoy the 2022 Bike weekend and weekday season.
Wonderful fridge door chart ! Useful and readable.
Thanks for doing this, I have passed it on to folk who might not be aware of this occuring.
