My wife and I had a great time on our day-long bike tour Ottawa. We saw not only a lot, but we learned a lot about what we saw. A good way to introduce yourself to city. We would recommend it highly.

Yes, you could do that. It is easier to bike from our location to sir John A Macdonald parkway or any other pathway in Ottawa. We are at a very central location and at the intersection of many bicycle paths in Ottawa.
