This week we tip our hats to flickr user camwil2009 for this colorful shot, taken along the Lachine Canal. Running more than 14 kilometers long, from Old Montréal to Lac St. Louis, the canal is a great backdrop for a leisurely bike ride or a scrumptious picnic. Lunch and bicycles can both be found at the Atwater Market. Check out the Lachine Canal Visitor’s Center if you are curious about the history of this unique Montréal landmark. Submit your pictures on our MONTRÉAL BUZZ FLICKR GROUP. —————————————————————————————————————— See our previous FLICKR PHOTO OF THE WEEK.

This edition of our “Flickr Photo of the Week” is from Py All. We like how the image simply references the Montréal appreciation of cycling. If you enjoy seeing the world on two wheels, check out the Vista Architectural Bike Tour. It takes cyclists on a unique exploration of Montréal that covers the architectural gems of Old Montréal, the beauty of the Lachine Canal and the fun of peddling through the Formula 1 race track! Vrrrooom! (Yes, that is the sound of a fast moving race car.) See last week’s PHOTO OF THE WEEK. Submit your pictures on our MONTREAL BUZZ FLICKR GROUP
THE MONTRÉAL BUZZ is a space for travelers and locals to congregate and to stay au courant with the best that is happening in the city. And nothing can communicate good times and stunning places like a photograph. So we got pulled out our hammers and nails and built ourselves a fun new flickr group. And after a strenuous brainstorming session, we decided to call it “THE MONTRÉAL BUZZ.” If you have Montréal photos to share, please join the fun! Each week we’ll select one photo to feature on the blog. This week’s photo is courtesy of traveler, photographer, consultant and hip Montréaler, Mr. Daniel Seguin. It features a man breakdancing! “But where will I find such fun times?” you ask. Well, dear friends, a couple of times a year Boulevard Saint Laurent, or “The Main” as it’s informally referred, becomes a fiesta of bargain shopping, street performers, delicious food vendors and people-watching. If this sounds good to you, make sure you are in Montréal on June 10 – 13, June 17 – 20 or August 26 – 29.
