Montreal to Chambly ride

Montreal to Chambly is a nice sunny afternoon ride.

I was exploring the route to Chambly, were there any changes to the route? What was the best part, what was the worst part? (hint my rear derailleur cable broke!)

The best part is arriving in Chambly, it has a lot to offer as a destination a couple of hours riding time from Montreal. Plus, it is close to Montreal, second the route is fairly direct, and along bike paths the entire way.

Here's the Chambly Canal. It has a bike path along it to St-Jean sur Richelieu, not far at all if you want a bit-further destination. You can follow it south all the way to New York City!

The coolest part is the spiral bike overpass!

The worst part was coming back along the 112/chemin chambly. It became extremely crappy once back in the south shore from the open countryside, I suggest you take the same bike out and back for this ride. You won't miss the 112, I can assure you.

Riding across the pont Jacques Bridge is always amazing, the views of Montreal are world class.
