Algonquin Trail Town Relay 2022
The Algonquin Trail
The Ottawa Valley Cycling and Active Transportation Alliance Inc (OVCATA) is very excited about the recent completion of trail surfacing on the Algonquin Trail. This provides a continuous 100 km stretch of the multi-use Trail rambling through many interesting communities and trail towns between Petawawa and Arnprior.
In order to encourage and engage municipalities and their residents to travel on the trail to neighbouring communities OVCATA is holding a relay event named Algonquin Trail Town Relay 2022 to be held on Saturday, August 20 commencing at 8 a.m.in Petawawa.
The relay team will cycle through all trail towns stopping in Petawawa, Pembroke, Cobden, Renfrew, Braeside and finally Arnprior. The relay team will carry gold railway spike batons to be presented to each County Municipal representative along the way. You can find the route maps here.
Municipal Recreation staff are asked to encourage residents to ride with the team by traveling part or all of the way to carry batons to the next municipality. Participants can sign up here to be part of this event.
