I saw a tiny little news blurb in today’s Metro News Ottawa and curiosity got the better of me so I googled to find out more.

Ottawa’s first-ever Plaid Parade takes place November 3, 2012. The ride starts at Suzy Q Donuts in HIntbonburg at 11 a.m. heads over to Dow’s Lake, through the Arboretum, over to the Experimental Farm and then back to Hintonburg. In case you’re late, Tall Tree Cycles has posted the route.

The ride and post-ride celebrations are brought to you by Victoire., Apt163, Tall Tree Cycles, Velo Vogue and Kichesippi Beer.

This from Victoire’s page:

After the Plaid Parade, there are other great bike-related events happening around Wellington Village: a bike themed art exhibit “Self Propelled” at Grey Area (next to 5Cent Tattoo), an open house at Tall Tree Cycles and an after party at the Kichesippi Brewery where there’ll be food from Murray Street Charcuterie & Flatbread Pizza Co. will be bringing their mobile pizza oven and selling artisan pizza by the slice! Plus music by local bands  Hamilton and Fellow, as well as free Brewery tours all day.

Okay, so I have a plaid shirt, NosyNeighbour has a plaid shirt, we have bikes … so maybe? Maybe Wellington would like to go for a ride and enjoy the leaves too?
