Join scheduled daily bike tours led by Ottawa locals or rent a bike, e-bike, scooter or boat and create your own adventure.

Locally-owned and operated Escape Bicycle Tours & Rentals offers small group bike tours of Ottawa and bike rentals daily from April to November. All-day, multi-day, and specialty tours are also available, or book a private tour for school or other groups or events. Tours take advantage of Ottawa's many scenic recreational bike paths to explore the city's landmarks, attractions, and neighbourhoods.

At its downtown location on Sparks Street between Metcalfe and Elgin streets, Escape also rents a wide variety of adult or children's bicycles, electric bikes and scooters, bike trailers for kids, and car racks. Each bike rental comes with a lock, helmet, and pannier bag. Escape also offers bike rentals at Dow's Lake Pavilion on the Rideau Canal, as well as kayaks, canoes and stand-up paddleboards at its Gatineau location in Jacques-Cartier Park. Renters can download self-guided maps of the Ottawa area from Escape's website or get route suggestions from staff members.
