Web Resource Launched for Cycling in the National Capital Region

An entirely new website about cycling in and around the Ottawa/Gatineau area has just been launched. The website features detailed articles, easy to understand maps, and numerous photos of a good number of bicycle rides, paths, and routes in the national capital region. These include the paths around town as well as rides to such nearby places as the Gatineau Hills and Carleton Place.

The website also provides considerable material about several destination outside the Ottawa/Gatineau area. These include articles about riding among the wineries of Prince Edward County next to Lake Ontario, and cycling the Laurentians on the famous "P'tit train du Nord" trail.

The website's primary focus is road biking and touring. It is generally aimed at people who are relatively new to cycling or new to the Ottawa-Gatineau region, although the descriptions of some of the rides and tours may be of interest to more experienced cyclists.

It is a non-commercial initiative by Michael McGoldrick, and can be found at mcgoldrick.ca/bike/.

Michael McGoldrick has web-published several other non-commercial sites about various outdoor activities. These include the "Ottawa River Sailing Page" (sailquest.com/ottawa/), which has been going strong since 1995, and a website about cross-country skiing in the Ottawa/Gatineau area (mcgoldrick.ca/xc-skiing/), which has developed a loyal following since it first appeared a little over two years ago.
