30 Days of Biking – Day 6 : Chinatown to Ottawa South, option number three

Hockey season is over, so this afternoon my son and I rode to Old Ottawa South and dropped off his team jerseys to be re-used by another player next season. This is the second time in my 30 Days of Biking adventures that I’ve pedaled to Old Ottawa South. The first was on day 3, however this time we followed a slightly longer route that avoids the not-so-safe Bank St bridge over the canal. Here’s how.

First we biked to and through the Experimental Farm, as described in this post, and crossed the Rideau Canal at the Hartwell Locks.

We cut through the Carleton University Campus, where we noticed this self serve bike repair stand against the wall of the School of Architecture. Good idea.

We then pedalled across Brewer Park along paths to Ottawa South, dropped off the jerseys, then followed the same route to get home as per my previous day 3 outing. A fine day for a bicycle ride.
