Pedal There

A short list of the coolest spots in Montreal that you can take a BIXI ride to.

It’s no secret that Montreal is one of the most bikeable cities in the world. But with so many cool places to check out, how do you narrow down the spots to hit up? Here’s a list of places to get you started when you’re finally stepping out of the office building for a weekend of vitamin D.

Lachine Canal

It might be an obvious choice, but nothing beats a bike ride along the water. Start off in Old Port and bike your way as far as you can get. If you need a break, just pack a blanket and chill, waterside.

La Fontaine Park

Get the best of both worlds with a park in the middle of the city. Get there through the bustling city streets (using the bike lanes of course) and enter a serene park to get away from it all. Bike around the paths or grab a seat and turn your phone off for a bit. It’s the perfect place to disconnect.

Parc Jean Drapeau

Yes, Montreal is an Island, but imagine biking around an area that actually feels like an island? Surrounded by water and tons of bike trails, Parc Jean Drapeau is a must for the last summer months.

So there’s a list to get you started. But don’t forget, Montreal is full of some of the most sought-after coffee shops and eclectic boutiques out there. While you’re on your way, make a full day out of it and visit everything that Montreal has to offer.
