Montréal Travel Guide

Bicycle Travel

An extensive network of bike paths and relatively flat terrain make Montréal ideal for bicycles. The Bixi (a contraction of "bicycle" and "taxi") system—with more than 3,000 sturdy aluminum-frame bikes at over 300 credit-card operated stands throughout the city—makes two-wheel exploring easy. For just C$7 you can take as many bike trips as you like over a 24-hour period, or for C$15 you can extend that to 72 hours. Pay attention to the time, though: the system is designed for short hops; keep any one bike for more than 30 minutes, and you'll be charged extra.
