GRAB LIFE BY THE HANDLEBARS!
You, your bike and your passion for cycling! There is something for cyclist here in Petawawa, no matter what style of biking you enjoy. From single track to road biking and our very own bike skills park and pump track designed by Jay Hoots!

Cycling is one of the greatest ways to get outside and be active. The Town of Petawawa firmly believes in cycling for recreation, transportation and being safe while doing so. Active transportation is a key to get people out of their cars and onto a bike or walking for exercise or to get to and from work or the store.

SHARE THE ROAD
Petawawa is able to offer sections of road with dedicated bike lanes that are lined and marked that run through the major arteries of town. Make sure to be visible, be safe and follow the rules of the road.
