Montreal is one of the easiest cities in North America to ride in, not only will you find on of the most extensive bike path networks which will allow you to see our beautiful city without having to fight traffic. You will also find a network of public rental bike (Bixi) on almost every second corner in and around Montreal’s downtown core as well as the surrounding neighborhoods, like the Plateau Mont-Royal, Verdun, Saint-Henri.
This site was started to help visitors as well as residents enjoy everything cycling that our lovely city and it’s surrounding areas have to offer, one of the biggest perks of living in Montreal is that if you ride for only a few minute in any direction off the island you will find yourself on quiet country roads with scenery raging from farm land to rolling hills and mountains.
While browsing VeloMTL you will find map of our favorite rides in and around the city, as this site was started to be a resource for cyclist we encourage you to add your comments and any information we may have missed about any ride you see on the site. We would also like to invite you to send us rides that we may have missed or don’t know about it will be our pleasure to share them for everyone to enjoy.
You will also find a listing of Montreal bike shops with maps to help you find them easily. As for the rides we would like to see people comment about their experience with their local bike shop, be it good or bad. We would also like it if you sent us the address of any shop that might have been left off the list, like for the rides we can’t know them all and nothing would make us happier then to discover new shops in the area.
Please keep in mind that this site will be constantly evolving so some elements of the site may not always work as well as we would like it to, but like everything else on the site we ask that you let us know what might be missing, broken or just nice to have and we will try to accommodate demands and suggestions as best we can.
