Crossing downtown: the high road and the low road
Went to the CCA tonight for FIFA films, went over by the "high road" Ave des Pins and Cedar (I overshot a bit on purpose) and came down Mt Pleasant. Views were good and the hill climb past the Royal Vic and Mtl General hospitals are beneficial.
Came back via de Maisonneuve path, Mcgill & ghetto, and parc avenue path, a surprising 93% on bike path.
I much preferred the high road, less cars and pedestrians and cyclists to interfere with a safe & long life.
Saw FIFA films on Alvar Aalto's Villa Mareo in Finland and the very new Norway opera house.
This was an active transport evening.
