Welcome to OVCATA - The Ottawa Valley Cycling and Active Transportation Alliance. We're a small group of volunteers who came together in 2016 to promote safe and healthy Active Transportation (AT) in the Ottawa Valley. Our style is collaborative, educational and non-adversarial. Since 2016, we've made a lot of progress that way and obtained strong buy-in and support from the County of Renfrew and many local municipalities.
We love to organize events, publicize and support other people's events all over the Valley, get bikes into the hands of those who need them, work with local governments and businesses, and lots more.
