Montreal bike paths are truly like no other. It's not surprising that we're considered one of the best cities for biking in the world. The city is home to over 500 kilometres of biking lanes — almost twice the amount of Copenhagen, the unofficial biking capital. And, what makes our bike paths even better is that they offer some incredible views.\nBiking offers a great way to get around that eco-friendly, good for your health and helps to see the city in new and exciting ways.\nIn fact, biking is such an important part of our life that the city started BIXI, a bike-sharing system that has over 6,200 bikes and 540 stations throughout Montreal, Longueuil and Westmount.\nThere's even a biking festival — because we have to combine our love of biking and our love of festivals.\nNow that the summer weather is finally here, it's a great time to get back out into the city and explore.\nHere's a list of some of the most popular routes that locals and tourists love to ride to get some of the best views in the city.\nLachine Canal Bike Path\nView this post on Instagram Sunset Ride 🌇🚴♂️🌅 . . #velo #instabike #sport #bikeporn #roadcycling #enduromtb #training #mountains #cyclingshots #mtbiking #gopro #freeride #dh #instacycling #cyclingpics #lifebehindbars #riding #bicicleta #photography #bici #bmx #outsideisfree #outdoors #fromwhereiride #stravacycling #bikestagram #sunsetride #adventureisoutthere A post shared by M I C H (@mich.nasr) on Jun 16, 2020 at 7:21am PDT\nStarting with one of the most popular bike paths, the Lachine Canal runs 15 kilometres from Old Montreal to Atwater Market.
