Every Sunday morning, between the Victoria Day weekend and Labour Day weekend, thousands of outdoor enthusiasts enjoy more than 50 kilometres of scenic parkways in the heart of the Capital and in Gatineau Park, which are closed to motor vehicles and open for cyclists, in-line skaters, runners and walkers.

Volunteers are the heart of NOKIA Sunday Bikedays. The program could not run without their support. The program provides an opportunity for people to give back to their community, as well as encouraging active living and a healthy lifestyle.

The following parkways are closed to vehicles for NOKIA Sunday Bikedays:

  • Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway (9 kilometres)
  • Colonel By Drive (8 kilometres)
  • Sir George-Étienne Cartier Parkway (8 kilometres)
  • Gatineau Park parkways (27 kilometres)
