Ottawa, Ontario

Aside from the beautiful scenery and well-kept bike paths, the city of Ottawa is dedicated to getting its residents pedaling out on the streets. The government website offers a comprehensive cycling map to help citizens plan their routes and even a bike school to get new cyclists started safely.

Ottawa also offers lots of incentives during Bike to Work Month – just for tracking your mileage, you can win prizes.
