The 2018 edition of the Preston Street Criterium was the 46th edition of the longest-running bike race in the Ottawa area.
First run in 1973, Preston Street was founded by local cycling legends Alan Large and Peter Tyler. Each Fathers’ Day since then the race has been a part of the Italian Festival in Ottawa’s Little Italy.
The race course and format have evolved over the years, but it remains a great way to spend a few hours in a charismatic part of the city. Come for the racing and stay for the party!
