Old Ottawa South Community Association

What’s a Bike Rodeo Anyway?

On Sunday June 11, 2017 the Old Ottawa South Community Association (OSCA) is partnering with the City’s Safer Roads Program to host a Bike Rodeo in Windsor Park.

OSCA’s Traffic & Safety Committee has invited our neighboring communities to help make this cycling event as useful, practical, and as much fun as possible.  On June 11th residents from Old Ottawa South, the Glebe, Old Ottawa East and Heron Park will mount their broncos (bicycles) to ride several of Capital Ward’s bicycle pathways/routes to Windsor Park where some of the City’s finest traffic & safety experts will share “tips” on bicycle safety and know-how.
