Interesting bike streets in Montréal

I was in Montréal, Quebec a fortnight back and I found the city’s cycling infrastructure quite interesting. While four days are grossly insufficient to gauge the cycling culture of a city, it was quite evident that biking was a popular mode of transport.

Bikes parked outside the Mont Royal station.

Bike locked (illegally?) to a parking station which are quite interesting itself.

On several streets of Toronto, there are bike lanes, i.e. a reserved lane on the either side of the street. In Montreal, bike lanes are almost like little independent streets. Some intersections even had traffic signals dedicated to cyclists.

A bike stand on Rue St. Denis. “Bike with your head” – I like that message. Bike Path, a street leading to Old Montreal

Bike path along Avenue du Parc

Probably the next time I go to Montréal, I’d like to bike there. 🙂
