We highly recommend going for a very different kind of bike ride at the Gilles Villeneuve Circuit on Ile Notre Dame, Montreal! This post shows you how to find the circuit and what to expect when you get there. Montreal cycling with a difference. Viva la difference!
Cette première partie est à propos de la location de vélos pour le cyclisme à Montréal. Si vous trouvez qu’il est trop coûteux ou trop problématique de transporter votre propre vélo à Montréal, ne t’inquiète pas – il y a des bonnes options pour la location de vélos. Bien sûr, il y a le système Bixi merveilleux pour la location de vélos à Montréal court terme – plus à ce sujet dans un futur post. Mais si vous voulez un vélo sérieux pour les longs voyages à vélo, ou pour plusieurs jours, vous devez regarder l’un des nombreux magasins de location de vélo à Montréal.
Une des meilleures façons de passer une journée ensoleillée à vélo à Montréal est de faire le vélo par la piste cyclable du canal de Lachine. Voici comment nous avons passé une journée parfaite sur la piste cyclable du canal de Lachine, et comment nous avons eu la chance de voir le Parc René-Levesque, la Voie maritime du Saint-Laurent et le lac Saint-Louis.
This is a guide plus video of the entire Central Valley Greenway (CVG). It runs all the way from Science World in Vancouver to the New Westminster Quay. It’s a challenging but very interesting bike ride. Parts are magical, other parts still need work to make them pleasant. It is NOT a AAA route (all ages and abilities), even though it aspires to be. Still, it is quite an awesome route, covering 24 km (15 miles) from Vancouver, through Burnaby, and into New Westminster. It is remarkably flat most of the time, but there are a few uphills.
With the tourist season coming, I decided to make some of my most popular posts about great bike routes in and around Vancouver easier to find. So I have created a page devoted to Vancouver cycling.

The Vancouver Park Board has unanimously approved a plan to widen the sidewalks along both sides of the Stanley Park Causeway to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians. This ambitious plan was partly in response to the death of a 61-year-old woman cyclist in 2013. It was also in response to all of the activism that followed. It is a long overdue move – but on the plus side, it is a giant step forward in providing safe cycling infrastructure to Vancouver residents.
Burnaby’s Deer Lake Park offers fun, safe cycling in a beautiful, lakeside environment – right in the heart of Burnaby. It’s safe and fun for the whole family. Our post includes a guide and two videos.

Although I have two beautiful bikes of my own, I confess that I do like to look at other bikes. When I’m out with Maggie I look at every bike that goes past. If they happen to have a woman sitting on them, Maggie tends to say things like “Get your eyes back in your […]
The Barnet Highway Bike Lane connects Burnaby and Port Moody in BC, Canada. It’s a wide bike lane on the side of a highway. It’s not separated, so it is not safe in bad weather or after dark. However, I enjoy the Barnet Highway bike lane for cycling training and working on my hill climbing abilities while enjoying amazing views and scenery.
