Shea & Diego
We both founded bike tour companies out of laneway garages 10 years ago, on different continents - Diego launched BA Bikes in Buenos Aires, and Shea launched Fitz & Follwell in Montreal. We've combined our passion and knowledge to offer top-notch bike experiences here in Ottawa - the kind we look for when we go traveling ourselves. We'll show you the best art, architecture, urban development, nature, and local events & festivals, but we also aren't afraid to show you the grit, imperfections, and realities of what living in Ottawa is like! We believe travel is also about authentic discovery experiences and connecting with the local culture, and our bike tours here in Ottawa offer exactly that.
We'll grab a snack together at the market - on us!
