“Great cycling and roller skating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

Used twice a year for the Indy and Formula 1 races, this perfect smooth 4.5km piece of asphalt sits in the middle of the St-Lawrence river, on the Notre-Dame island, site of the 1967 International exposition, it offers a perfect (Exposition universelle de Montréal). It is a perfect spots for pushing yourself on a bike and on your roller skate. If you do go for that, avoid week-end's afternoon where hundreds or more leisurely oriented folks invade the track. Nothing wrong with that and also very pleasant if you want to relax from your training

Well known for the F1 and other motorcar races, but mostly appreciated by the locals for its great bike and roller-skate circuit.

“Vroom Vroom you can bike and rolle rblade the track”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

How many places in the world have a Formula One Grand Prix Race Track within 5-10 mins from downtown, which is open to the public to bike, walk or rollerblade one . NO Driving on it sorry!! This is one of my favourite places in Montreal because of the views, the track and on Grand Prix Weekend in Montreal you can hear the cars 15 km away with the windows closed.. Vroom Vroom

“Nothing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2012

A really big nothing happening over there! Best spot in town to make dreams come true. But the government is watching every move you make and getting every penny it can! too bad for Gilles Villeneuve... he deserved better than having this "honor"
