June 26, 2012 – A total of 540 kilometres of fun: that’s the length of the Montréal cycling path network, basically the same distance as a return trip between Montréal and Québec. Impressive, don’t you think? It’s not surprising that thousands of tourists and visitors choose to explore the city by bike each year. And it’s in the heart of Old Montréal – the ultimate starting point for a bike tour – that you’ll find Montréal On Wheels, a one-stop shop for cyclo-tourists ready to head out on an urban adventure.
This sales and rental centre for bikes, inline skates and accessories not only boasts a fleet of over 150 bicycles of all kinds, but also offers courses, suggested itineraries and out-of-this-world bike tours led by an experienced guide.
The City Tour that covers the city’s tourist areas and all the main attractions is an absolute must for a first-hand look at Montréal’s diverse neighbourhoods. Their newest tour is entitled the Vista-Architecture tour and features architectural marvels and superb landscapes as you cross the mighty St. Lawrence River on your bike! Each three-hour tour includes bike rental for the entire day, so if your legs are up for more touring, you can pedal away to your heart’s content!
And if you like to hop out of bed and right onto your bicycle, Montréal On Wheels offers bike delivery right to your hotel. Talk about the royal treatment!
