Parc nature de l'ile de la visitation, one of Montreal's best parks

St-Vincent-de-Paul prison restrains a different 1% than the one in the news these days.

Winter is coming, and it's going to feel like you are inside a prison for a few months, so get out now for a late autumn bike ride, maybe to explore your city like we did today?

Tamarack (Larch) needles change colour in autumn, unlike all other local conifer trees.

Pont Viau bridge & bike path renovations nearing completion

The Pont Viau bridge is at the northern terminus of Berri/Lajeunesse streets and links directly to these streets and their new bike lanes. This is a terrific new addition for bike commuters from Laval and the northern part of the city.

New north-end Berri/Lajeunesse bike lanes are now open for riding

Crossing the new A25 bridge, an excellent addition to bike-able bridges of Montreal

Riding over to this bridge make a nice 40km loop ride along the scenic Riviere des Prairies.

You can see this bike ride is here on Bikely maps.
