This exceptional uninterrupted bike path follows the St. Lawrence River from the eastern edge of Verdun to the western border of Lachine. You'll love the spectacular views of Lac Saint-Louis and the majestic Lachine Rapids. Green spaces, parks, swimming pools, restaurants etc. The Banks of St. Lawrence River are connected with the Lachine Canal, l'Île des Soeurs, La Voie Maritime and Gilles-Villeneuve bike paths.
One of the first bicycle trail in the Quebec Province, beautiful! For over a century, heavily loaded barges travelled the Canal, a distance of about 20 km. The nine locks allowed the barges to bypass rapids and overcome a considerable difference in levels between the Chambly basin and the Upper Richelieu. Fort Chambly stands on the banks of the Richelieu River, at the foot of the Chambly Rapids.
This bycycle path is also a F1 & NASCAR racing circuit! The pavement is probably the best in the bicycle path world! From the Lachine Canal bike path close to the Old Port, follow the signs for Cité du Havre and then for Gilles-Villeneuve Circuit on Île Notre-Dame.
The paved path shared by cyclists, in-line skaters and walkers is completely separated from car traffic. It is lighted at night and is well maintained. The park is open all year long and the path is maintained from April 15 to October 31. It's one of the most popular bicycle trail in Canada.
Some of them, the nature parks, have a very special mission that includes environmental conservation, architectural heritage and diverse plant and animal life. Each of these parks is unique and has its own distinctive charm.
The region is criss-crossed by bicycle paths. Along the Soulanges Canal runs a magnificent 34-kilometer (20-mile) cycle path, part of the trans-Quebec green way. Already very popular, it provides incomparable views of the canal to some 125 thousand cyclists a year.
Montreal has one of the most extensive (Not the one) systems of bicycle paths of any North American city. Check out the Montreal bicycle trail map and maps of the bicycle network which are accessible to the public.
You'll be in the middle of the St. Lawrence River! Officially, it's not a bike path. However, there is so much cyclist there that you must discover it. That 12 km traffic free trail connect l'Île des Soeurs with Gilles-Villeneuve Circuit (1,5 km non-paved) & l'Île des Soeurs and the beautiful Récré-O-Parc of Sainte-Catherine (11 km paved). Relaxing, photographing and swimming activities. Accessible by the Gilles-Villeneuve Circuit, Champlain Bridge Estacade from l'Île des Soeurs, Victoria Bridge (Bike path from Longueuil, south shore) & Sainte-Catherine (Récré-O-Parc, south shore), it's about a minimum of 30 km ride back and forth. July, August and September is the best time to ride it. Enjoy!
