Thanks Boris. Your Giant Defy carbon Ultegra was a good fit and choice for the Gatineau Park and region. The endurance frame and compact crank is well suited to the terrain. Hope to see you again.

Excellent service and bikes. Great location next to the canal with easy access to multiple routes. Highly recommended. We used the RidewithGPS app and downloaded a few rides. A route map would be a nice addition.

The rental process was fast and easy and the bikes were in great condition. Our intent was to go for an hour bike ride but once we got going we couldn’t get over how many bike paths there are in Ottawa. We ended up keeping the bikes for over 4 hours.

Thanks for your review! We love our bike paths here in Ottawa. Since we are located right on the bike path, it is quick to get going with no walking your bike across roads, waiting at traffic lights or directions about how to find the path. Glad you could get going quickly. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Ottawa and feel free to come back and we can show you some more pathways to explore!
