On July 1, ride a kilo­me­tre for each year of Con­fed­er­a­tion

One hun­dred and fifty years ago this July 1, the Bri­tish North Amer­ica Act kicked in, cre­at­ing the coun­try of Canada. Sure, it’s a hum­ble ori­gin story, but it’s, of course, quintessen­tially Cana­dian in many ways. For your Canada Day, dear Cana­dian cy­clists, why not try some­thing slightly am­bi­tious. Mark the oc­ca­sion with a 150-km ride: one click for each year of Con­fed­er­a­tion. If you are in Ottawa, Winnipeg, Que­bec City, Van­cou­ver or Char­lot­te­town, the routes below have you cov­ered. Rid­ers in those re­spec­tive cities charted things out for you. If you’ll be rid­ing in an­other fan­tas­tic lo­cale in this big coun­try on Canada Day, use these rides to in­spire your own 150-km jaunt on two wheels.
