Make your way to a central location to meet a guide and get fitted with a comfortable city bike. Set out along north Montreal’s narrow streets, passing green parks and café-lined boulevards, pausing at some of the city’s impressive murals and public art installations. At each stop, learn a bit about how Montreal’s diverse characters and communities have shaped the city, and ride through Jewish, Italian, Portuguese, and Mexican communities. Loop past Jean Talon Market, a favorite spot for browsing fresh produce and local products, then pedal back to the starting point, where this half-day Montreal bike tour concludes with a light snack.
