Capital Vélo Fest is an Ottawa based non-profit organization with the mission to:

Inspire people of all ages to ride a bike more often

We fulfill our mission by planning and implementing cycling related events and activities that encourage people to get on their bikes. Commuting bikes, road bikes, mountain bikes, e-bikes — we love them all! Unicycles, two-wheelers, tandem bikes, and trikes — riding a bike is fun in all of its forms! In addition to being enjoyable, cycling is good for individuals’ health and is good for a community’s health, by reducing road infrastructure expense and dependence on carbon powered transportation.

Our events use fun as a persuasive force to influence the choice to ride. We combine the pleasure of cycling with education, information, and entertainment in bicycle festivals, bicycle rallies and bicycle rodeos. Our main event is Ottawa’s premier bicycle festival, held the first weekend in June. Our open bike rallies is in September, and we can organize a private bike rally for businesses and organizations that want to have a team building event that promotes a healthy lifestyle with environmental consciousness. Our camp and school bike rodeos are designed by Can-Bike trained instructors to teach cycling and road skills to children and youth with age-appropriate activities and cycling games. We also own SMOOCH, our bicycle powered smoothie machine that stirs up a delicious concoction in about minute with human power.

Plan to attend our public events to enjoy cycling in the Capital Region with a unique twist, or contact us to arrange a cycling event dedicated and customized to your group.
