Ottawa Bicycle Club Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour 2011

This year was the 40th year that the Ottawa Bicycle Club sponsored a weekend tour from Ottawa to Kingston and back. I cycled in the 2009 tour (photos by Graeme) but had injuries last year and other commitments this year.

After photographing activities at the Walk for Juvenile Diabetes Sunday morning, I walked over to Carleton University where tables of volunteers awaited the return of the cyclists from Kingston. About 2 PM and some cyclists were already back and packing their bikes into their cars.

    Hi Ron:
    Met you at our Beckwith Park on Sat. June 11th, and was wondering how you enjoyed our Heritage Fair, and was wondering if you had taken any pictures, other than Buttons my dog, and where I should look for them.
    Thank you

    Hi Ron,
    you have several very good photo’s of our peloton arriving at Carlton. Beginning with the red Canadian cycling shirt (Joe), next Jeff in the orange Rabobank shirt, myself with the white Tour shirt and Maria in the white horse shirt, you have our peloton from the London Cycling Club. We traveled together both ways and meeting great people along the way. Thank you very much. William

    Thanks for the photos, Ron! I saw you there snapping as we arrived, and was right pleased to find the photos online the next day. They already bring back great memories of that final rush to the finish, and the joy and satisfaction I was feeling. What a day, what a weekend, what a ride!

    I’ve already sent the link to friends and family

    Much obliged.
