With its myriad pathways and stunning downtown scenery, Ottawa is truly an urban cyclist’s dream. Don’t have your own wheels? Don’t worry: Just find a Capital BIXI station, pay the fee, hop on, and start exploring! The bikes are available 24/7 and can be taken from and returned to any of the 25 stations throughout Ottawa and Gatineau. The word BIXI is a portmanteau of the words ‘”bike” and “taxi”, and accordingly, the bikes are practical, economical, and fun. What better way to see the city?
