Friday Night, May 29th, is lighted night ride (Tour La Nuit). Decorate your bikes and ride along the city streets of Montreal with 17,000 other riders! Starts at 8pm and the ride is 12.4 miles.

On Sunday, May 31st is the Tour de L'ile. This ride has mileage options from 15 miles to 130. Pick whatever suits your comfort level.

I plan on heading up on Thursday, May 28, and staying until Monday, June 1st. You are welcome to plan your trip with whatever fits your schedule/budget.

There are quite a few lodging options to choose from (hotels, B&Bs, Air-BnB, etc). If you plan to go and want to coordinate lodging, let me know.

I've never been but I have heard great things about this event. And Montreal is rated as one of the best bike friendly cities in the world. Let's go check it out!
