Icky, sticky, muggy day of cycling 106 km of Montreal’s paths…in fact I was dripping, soaking wet most of the day as temps ranged from 20-30 degrees with lots of humidity. Figured out correct route into city and did an extended cruise through St. Catherines’ neighborhoods and then down the middle of the 10 km Seaway cycle route. Took Montreal Aquaduct and Lachine canal routes to a lunch stop at the Atwater Market where 100’s of cyclists in all shapes, sizes, and ages converged in the square; it was very reminiscent of cycling in Amsterdam. It was crazy to see a man smoking a pipe while cycling plus the two old French guys cruising along in their underwear? Tom would not comply!! A much needed refuel allowed us to follow the Lachine canal out to the end of ReneLevequePark where we had great views of the St. Laurence Seaway and took in the public art park. Return route was along water side of La Salle Boulevard past the Lachine rapids which were filled with surfers and rafters; hooked onto the Estacade across SistersIsland and back through St Catherine’s for another great day!!
