Montreal’s Waterfront By Bike

Discover Montreal’s waterfront by bike while meeting new people! Join us for Monday evening bike rides to get moving, explore Montreal’s landscapes, neighbourhoods and bike paths along its many shores. You’ll get the chance to see many spots where you could plan a future beach or paddling excursion along the way!

Each week, we will take a different route. Distances will vary between 17 and 35 km. Bring your bike and helmet. Wearing a helmet is mandatory. You should already be comfortable with riding a bike. Meet on Mondays at 6 p.m. in Lafontaine Park (with a few notable exceptions!) Return around 9 pm at the same place. Rain or shine. The routes could be modified or shortened without notice.

Registration: online from the Milton Park Recreation Association here:  Space is limited. Please note that it will only be possible to register for one outing at a time, and that we will gradually open up registrations for the following outings.

Cost: $5 plus taxes for an outing. Low-income newcomers: please register at the regular rate, and we’ll give you a $5 credit plus taxes with ARMP if you actually attend the event. Practical information will be provided to you within your purchase confirmation.

Special COVID-19-related measures:

  • We will comply with current health regulations and will inform you when you register.
  • Participants will need to accept an acknowledgement of risks form in order to register.
