This 3-hour tour starts at a bike shop in Old Montreal. Gather the necessary equipment for the day — a bicycle, helmet, lock and a bottle of water. Then after a quick safety briefing, hop on the bike and follow the guide to downtown Montreal to begin the adventure.
This enjoyable 6-mile (10-kilometer) journey travels along the Old Port of Montreal, the iconic Farine Five Roses art project sign, the trendy City du Multimédia neighborhood, the mythical Place d’Armes, the Quartier des spectacles entertainment district, the stunning squares of the business district and more.
Along the way, learn about Montreal’s history, architecture and public art while sampling urban gourmet discoveries. Visit three of the city’s street-food hotspots. Try Montreal-style smoked meat from the takeout food counter at a favorite local eatery. Or dessert from an outdoor cafe stand. Then find the food truck everyone’s been talking about. Food is at own expense and cash only.
At the end of the tour, return the bike or keep it for the remainder of the day (until closing time) to explore the city individually.
