Hop on Bikes grew out of requests for play ideas for children and youth to keep busy and physically active during the Covid-19 pandemic. The result was an identified need for bikes, helmets and locks for children and youth living in OCH communities.

Hop On Bikes is a partnership between OCH Foundation, re-Cycles Ottawa and the Ottawa Community Housing Corporation. We work together to obtain, refurbish, fit, and deliver bikes. Events happen throughout the year in OCH communities.

We believe that all children and youth should have access to quality physical activity and play opportunities. For many, a bike is considered a childhood rite of passage. Help us ensure young people in OCH have their very own bike story to tell.
