April 25, 2016 In 2014, to better reflect the popularity of biking and the mobilizing role of its unique North American festival, Vélo Québec renamed the Montréal Bike Fest the Go Bike Montréal Festival.

For a recreational outing or an athletic challenge, there is a Tour de l’Île for everyone:

50, 25 or 30 km

Classic version: 50 km of car-free streets, ideal opportunity to see and experience Montréal in a different way. The same pleasure is possible over a shorter distance, via the 25 km route or 30 km, if you want to bike there and back via the Jacques-Cartier Bridge.

50 km Express

Accelerated version where, first to leave, cyclists travel at 30 km/h for 1½ hours on closed-off downtown streets route of the Tour de l'Île de Montréal.

65-100 km Découverte 

Original version, to underline the 30th edition, where cyclists literally bike around Montréal Island, or 100 km, with the possibility of shortening the route to 65 km. Morning departure on marked-off route open to motorists. Capacity 3,000 places.

Tour la Nuit, Friday night

Whether you are participating for the first or the umpteenth time, it’s always a revelation! You experience the beauty and energy of nocturnal Montréal at its best. Costumed cyclists on colourful bikes pedal 20 kilometres of city streets in the warm June air.

This large biking celebration is also celestial. The ambient light is beautiful against the blue and black of the twilight sky, creating a cool and luminous ambiance. And the smiling faces of the 17,000 participants are also a divine sight.
