A stop at beautiful Rideau Falls will be a refreshing experience plus your will learn about the history of trades in our region. We will continue our tour by cycling to the province of Quebec and a stop at the museum of history to get a beautiful view of Ottawa including the Parliament Building and learn about the museums and political scene of the city.
