Today, a new ride is taking place in Ottawa to honor Global Women's Cycling Day, or CycloFemme.
Rides and other events to honor this day--which also happens to be Mother's Day in the US. (Yes, I called my mother!) Today's ride is the first such event for the Canadian capital.
According to the announcement, women of all ages and cycling abilities are welcome. And there's no entrance fee. What's not to like?
I've never cycled in Ottawa, but I hear that an active cycling community has developed there. Given what I experienced when cycling in another Canadian bilingual city--Montreal--I wouldn't be surprised.
