Built between 1827 and 1832 without the aid of power machinery, the Canal is one of Ottawa's oldest landmarks; it runs from the Ottawa River near Parliament Hill to Hog's Back Falls on the south end of the city. During the summer, a wide range of vessels, including tour boats, glide along the waterway, while people in-line skate, jog or stroll on the canal's picturesque banks. During the winter, the canal is transformed into the "World's Longest Skating Rink," and is a hub of activity during Ottawa's Winterlude festival.
I went to Ottawa the other day and i would have to say that the bike ride down the canal was pretty good. It was a good day, the scenery was excellent, as were the women ;) . I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get a feel for Ottawa without partaking of the tourist crush.
