Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike.
— John F. Kennedy

The pandemic has seen a substantial rise in people using bicycles and the City of Montreal has accelerated accompanying infrastructure in order to promote this advantageous way of getting around.

Bicycling is cheap, solves traffic, parking and urban spatial problems, produces no emissions and allows the cyclist to enjoy the benefits of a healthy active lifestyle simply by going to work. Furthermore, it is reliable and, if you live less than 8 kilometers away, it could take you a similar amount of time as would transit or driving.

And did we mention it is just plain FUN?

Check out what is waiting for you on campus and around the city to make your ride as convenient and comfortable as possible.
