There is no age limit for the event. Younger cyclists will have an opportunity to demonstrate some of their best riding skills in obstacle courses designed to teach them safe handling. Under the guidance of Safe Cycling Ottawa, the tennis
courts at Windsor Park will serve as fenced-in safety corrals to practice turns, bike
balance and hand signals.
All events are optional, except for the free training for volunteers on Saturday. While the dinner and lunch are not free--menu options vary in price--all other events and services, including bike and tire tune-ups on Saturday, are free.
