“Hidden gem”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Rent bikes and travel along the canal for a bit of exercise and to see parts of Montreal you can't see from your car or bus. You pass warehouses turned condos, micro-breweries, and offices, as you travel east you get to Lachine where there are nice restaurants along the canal to stop and eat before heading back downtown.

“Lachine Canal (Canal du Lachine)”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Did the cycle. Hired bike from Ca Roule Montreal on Wheels down along the Rue de La Commune - was was pretty reasonable. A lot of detours along the route - doing road / route repairs, which was confusing at times. Was a lovely sunny day and well worth the trip. Would do it again if I ever return to Montreal. Saw no restaurants on the way, so had to wait till I got back to the city for something to eat.

“Fur Trade”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

This is the original site of the fur trade. The park is a nice leisurly walk
along the lakeshore. There are many places to park. You can rent a
kayak or canoe (relatively inexpensive) and slowly paddle the calm waters or a little further down you can go rafting. Across the street are many good restaurants with outdoor terraces or have an ice cream and watch the locals fish off the lighthouse pier. It's about 20 minutes from downtown and easy to reach.

“Perfect bicycling trip”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

We rented bikes at Ca Roule Montreal on Wheels down along the Rue de La Commune by the river in Old Montreal. Very helpful staff, and they provided you with a small bike bag, helmet, a map and locks. Our ride lasted about six hours along a lovely flat bike path down the canal to Lachine where we had lunch, then back along the St Lawrence River past the Lachine Rapids where we took pictures of surfers and kayakers. Finally a stop at the Atwater Market, which was a delight.

“On Your Bike!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

The best way of seeing this place is definitely on a bicycle. It really is a very long walk from one end to the other, but on a bike you can do it on a day, stopping off to see various places, and find somewhere to eat your picnic, or go to a restaurant.
