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!
Montreal’s great cycling infrastructure has led to impressive progress towards the city’s aims: decreasing pollution by increasing cycling in Montreal, while decreasing motor vehicle use.
This is a guide to one of the greatest bike rides in the world, the Lachine Canal Bike Path. Montreal cycling in general is wonderful, and one of the best rides is flat and off-road along the historic Lachine Canal Bike Path. Completely off-road, it winds along beside the Lachine Canal for around 30 km (round trip).
Other cities can learn a whole lot from the elegant design of Montreal’s separated bike lanes. In 2015 Montreal was ranked 20th in the world for bike friendly city by the respected Copenhagenize Index. The only North American city that did better was Minneapolis at no. 18. Although it has slipped a bit in the rankings, Montreal remains a stellar city to cycle in. What has Montreal got that almost no other city in North America has got? Well, for a start, separated bike lanes so that people can ride bikes in relative safety. After strenuous action from activists, Montreal has provided a simply brilliant system of physically separated bike lanes.
