The 2018 edition of the Preston Street Criterium was the 46th edition of the longest-running bike race in the Ottawa area.

***CLICK HERE FOR THE 2018 RACE REPORT***

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!
