May is Bike to Work Month and the City of Ottawa is encouraging residents to commute by bicycle.
If your bike needs a tune-up after the long winter, the free bike maintenance pod is returning to City Hall, thanks to support from Safer Roads Ottawa. The pod is at Ottawa City Hall on Marion Dewar Plaza, Monday to Friday from May 6 to 17 between 3:30 and 6:30 pm. Bike mechanics from Cycle Salvation will inspect and can make adjustments to your bike, but if you need any repairs, they’ll refer you to a reputable bike shop.
Rack and Roll is back for the season, so if you find your ride too long, try loading your bike on the bus for part of the trip. Racks are installed on the front of over 600 buses, including all articulated and double-decker buses, and bikes can be transported year-round on O-Train Line 2, the Trillium Line.
