As a first time Formula 1 Go'er and a Die-Hard fan as my boyfriend , We wanted to make the most of our weekend but found there was not a whole lot of information online. Here are a few things I wish I had known and will keep in mind for next time! 1. Metro Pass is a god sent!... More

We were thrilled to find that on a rainy morning in October, the circuit is open to drive around, albeit at a sedate 30km per hour. Being wet, there were no cyclists to avoid. The first corner was deep in water on the inside - did we know the camber from the TV shots? "Salut Gilles" is painted on the... More

I visited Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on a lovely sunny morning as part of a Ca Roule Montreal cycling tour. We rode approx. 3 - 4 kilometres of the circuit amongst other cyclists, pedestrians, cars and joggers. I got a real buzz actually being on the race surface but knowing I was going about 320 kmh slower than those who compete... More

Myself, my sister and my mother rented bikes to cycle out to the island. It was a leisurely cycle the whole way (although the wind on the bridge made it tough going!) and once on the track we had great run racing each other. However we ended up cycling through a swarm of bugs. Ok, I thought, it will be... More

The pre-experience was slightly disorganized but once you finally get in the car (I was in a lamborghini) you get to drive a powerful vehicle with an experienced driver by your side. I originally bought one turn of the track through groupon but was convinced to purchase 3. I am very glad I did since you won't get the full... More

Interesting and definitely a nice experience as it is close to the biosphere and in a very green space.

If you're a cyclist like myself, there is nothing greater in Montreal to do. From the ride over the St. Lawrence River, to the rush you get when your wheels first hit the same pavement F1 drivers driver on, awesome front, back and side-to-side.

I regularly go a few laps on two wheels. It's a great place for cyclists! I especially recommend the circuit to cyclists who want a great paved circuit to go all-out and test their limits!

The best part of this circuit is that you can get on it with your vehicule :) This means that Bike, motorbike, car, skateboard, blades - anything with wheels. Hell, you can even walk it. You can't race on it (there are pedestrians) but still there's nithing like the feeling of driving on a real race track (especially after driving... More

Apart from the world famous Formula 1 this is great for biking and roller bladeing when it is open to the public. [free]. You can approach it from either of Montreal's 2 bridges: the Jacques Cartier or the Estacade next to the Champlain bridge from Nun's Island. This is fantastic for testing your speed and endurance since the pavement is... More
