With Montreal finally getting hit by such a glorious heatwave residents around the city are gaining that summer driven confidence to let it all hang out, some much more than others.
Montreal's nudist/naturist gathering is rather incognito as some may have noticed, but thankfully, it is far from in-existent. World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) happens worldwide all throughout the month of June, and as we are now in July and have yet to dare -and-bare all that we have, some local participants took it upon themselves to create an official event; lest we not continue the 9th annual World Naked Bike Ride (Montreal Edition).
Cyclists/nudists/activists have taken the opportunity, to bravely take off their clothes for a cause Saturday July 6th. On the outskirts of the city's core, at Square-Phillips, one beautiful bare-chested day of July you may happen across a group of cyclists, putting their feet down (to the peddle), peacefully cycling against oil dependency, celebrating their bodies and emphasizing their ability to provide independent/sustainable self transportation.
Saturday July 6th, 2013 at 14h, Montrealers will be exercising their right and freedom to move towards a cleaner/healthier city and will challenge the ambiguous municipal laws revolving around 'indecent exposure'.
So step up and strip down, we'll see you there Montreal.
This includes the portion that takes cyclists over the Champlain bridge, making for a beautiful ride — whether you're looking for outdoor exercise and views or you actually need to get from Saint-Lambert to the downtown core.
Fun fact: The Great Trail, formerly known as the Trans Canada Trail, is the longest recreational trail in Canada and connects all of its provinces and territories. Having taken 25 years to build, the trail covers 24,000 kilometres of land and waterways in Canada.
Quebec's Route Verte covers over 5,300 kilometres, allowing cyclists to travel to Ontario, New Brunswick and the United States.
According to the SPJD, the bike path detour on the Victoria Bridge will continue this season. Cyclists must use the safe passage section of the traffic lane because the cycling overpass is still unusable.
Murals are no longer restricted to the many walls of Montreal, because one borough in the city is putting street art onto the street. Yes, Montreal is getting street art bike lanes, reports Global News.
Officially dubbed "safety art," this cyclist-and-pedestrian safety project is housed in Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie.
More specifically, the artwork is on Beaubien Street, and its colourful blue, red, and yellow pattern is meant to make drivers more alert of pedestrian zones.
The "street art bike lane" was designed by Montreal-based artist Peter Gibson, otherwise known as Roadsworth, who is no stranger to creating works of art on city streets.
Roadsworth is known for making murals on the road, and we've sprinkled some of his past work throughout this article.
Note, however, that the image attached to this article is not the "safety art" now on Beaubien street, but another piece of Gibson's street art. The tweet below by reporter Felicia Parillo will give you a look at what the first street art bike lane in Montreal really looks like.
‘Safety art’ on Rosemont intersections aims to keep cyclists safe. Tune into the full story at 5:30pm.https://t.co/gNm0sjqYzE
Not to brag, but we actually posed the idea of turning bike lanes into works of art over a year ago. Fortunately, at least one borough in Montreal listened... or came up with the idea on their own, which is admittedly more likely. Either way, we're pumped to see this type of project being launched in Montreal.
That isn't to say everyone is on-board with Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie's latest effort to ensure the safety of pedestrians and cyclists.
Some residents of the borough say that the safety art won't make much of a difference, and drivers won't pay attention. Others say that the $25,000 it cost to make the street-level mural should have been spent on repairing roads, not painting on them.
Whether or not the newly created safety art will make a difference on the rather busy (and sometimes hazardous for anyone not in a car) stretch of Beaubien remains to be seen.
