The Grand Prix Of Cycling Is Coming To Montreal

This year marks the 6th edition of the UCI World Tour's Bicycle Grand Prix in Montreal. Seeing as how Montreal is one of the most bike friendly places in the world, it's fitting for our city to host this kind of event. Cycling had been growing exponentially in popularity here. In fact in the plateau, the front gates are either covered in bicycles or tiny "No bikes allowed" pictures. So either way you have bikes on your gate.

The race takes place on Sunday, September 13th on Park Avenue, North of the Georges-Étienne Cartier Monument. The teams will be presented at 10:00 am and the race begins at 11:00 am.

The event is FREE to attend for all spectators.
