The weekly skate for bears and other LGBTQ2S people and our friends is back for 2020.

We plan on skating every Sunday that the canal is open. Skating on the canal is fun and it’s even more enjoyable to do so in the company of bears and other gay and bear-friendly people.

We will meet at the coffee shop inside the NAC at 2:00 pm and at around 2:15 pm we will head down to the Rideau locks change area. You can meet up with us at either spot, and we will post our location during the skate on our Facebook Page:

If this section of the canal is closed due to bad ice or weather, we will meet at the McDonald’s at 5th ave and Bank in the Glebe at 2:00 pm and at 2:15 pm we will go to the 5th Ave change area.

After the skate we will head over to Ts for something hot and to join the other bears. All are welcome.

Be sure to check the Rideau Skateway conditions before coming out:

There’s an interactive map there with all the locations.
