In partnership with Bike Ottawa, you can relax and take in all the music while knowing your bike is safely stored at the Bike Park. For all the in's and out's of how the Bike Park works, see the link below.

For most patrons, this is not the best option. Please plan in advance if you intend to use this transportation option. Road closures occur at around 5 PM.
Just kidding. Although we are located by the Ottawa River, we don't recommend this form of transportation due to rapids.
