Mont Royal new bike/pedestrian loop path update
The Gazette's Michelle Lalonde writes about the new Mount Royal "car-free ring road" that is presently being built bit by bit. This is amazing good news. Read it here.
The idea is to create a 10-kilometre-long gravel road, four to five metres in width, encircling all three peaks of Mount Royal as well as the cemetery grounds. The road will wind all the way around the mountain, parts of it tracing the outer limits of cemetery lands, parts winding into the forest and up the slopes to offer gorgeous views of the city.
When the project is completed, sometime over the next two or three summers, cyclists and joggers will have a safe, gorgeous, challenging 10-kilometre-long route on which to train or just meander.
