Your trip to Quebec begins in the metropolis of Montreal. Montreal is located on an island in the St. Lawrence River. It is the second largest city after Paris, where mother tongue French is spoken. Plan enough time to explore the city before going on your bike ride. There is a lot to see and the city often changes its character. The hectic downtown with its office towers and the nearly 40-kilometer-long tunnel system, which protects office workers from freezing temperatures and snow in winter. The vibrant Mile End with its many cafes and small shops. The relaxed and veranda-occupied Outremont. The touristic prepared Vieux-Montréal. Best of all, you can explore everything on wonderfully prepared bike paths.On Mont Royal, the city's mountain with a large park, your bike tour begins. Through the streets of the metropolis you roll to the harbor and cross over several bridges and islands the river St. Lawrence. Here you will pass Habitat 67 and head for the Biosphere, two not only architecturally interesting buildings, which the City of the World's Fair of 1967 has to thank. Then you feel like a racing car, because the city's formula 1 course is open to cyclists, as long as there is no race. There are even pit stops including tools and vending machine.Through the suburbs of the city you drive out of town until it gets greener in front of Chambly. From here you will continue along the banks of the Riviere Richelieu until you reach today's destination, St. Jean-sur-Richelieu.
