Bushtukah Women’s Only Metric Century Clinic Application

This Program is now Full for 2017!

Thank you for your interest in the Bushtukah women’s ride your first metric century clinic. This is a free clinic, and spots are limited. 

We’ve planned a series of rides, of increasing distance, over a variety of great local roads for the next few months – and yes, these include an outing up to Champlain Lookout! Our goal century will be in mid-September.

To help make sure we have a group of riders who are well matched for riding together (both in pace, skill level and motivation), please answer the questions below. (If you’re not sure if this clinic is for you, we have a number of other group rides planned through the summer. Find out more at www.bushtukah.com/events ) 

 

 

 

Thank you. We’ll be in touch! 

 

2016 Events – Velo MSM Mountain Fest

We are a participant in this not a sponsor but we wanted to talk about it because what started as a local event has become eastern Canada’s largest mountain bike festival. There are demos and displays by local dealers, activities for the whole family and some trail running too. A great opportunity to check out the trail network at Mont St Marie and a fun party weekend. The 2017 Velo MSN Mountain Fest will be held July 21-23. You can find more information  here

2016 Events- The Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour

Each year 2000 cyclists celebrate spring by getting up on Saturday morning and riding 180km from Ottawa to Kingston and then just because they can, on Sunday morning they ride back again!20160612_071029

The Ottawa Bicycle Club Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour has been going on for 45 years! Bushtukah has not been around that long but we have been a sponsor of this event for many years. We also provide some of the on route tech support.  Its always a great event and the OBC does an outstanding job.

This year will be one of the years everyone talks about. After a great ride with a tail wind both ways in 2015, 2016 was wet and windy. We are sure 2017 will be much nicer! This year’s event will be held June 10th and 11th, You can find details here

2015 Events- Cyclosportif Perth

This was the third year for this fall cycling tour and for the third year in a row the weather was outstanding! There are three rides available: The Roadie 100k, The Roadie Century and The Dirty Version- 100K on a mix of paved and dirt roads. Everything starts and ends at the Perth Fairgrounds where chilli and beer are severed post event.
