The Oshawa Cycling Club Canada Day Ride and Picnic is one of the highlights of the year for our club members. Tradition dictated that we would ride 1 kilometre on honour of every year since Canada’s birth. Although it was a lofty goal, as Canada ages the number of kilometres’ to ride started to get a little high for everyone. With that in mind the current long route has be set at 145km for the time being.
