What you'll do

The ultimate goal is to make you realize that the bike sharing system "BIXI" is very effective and can meet the needs of all tourists regardless of their fitness level. Combining cycling and public transportation maximizes all the things you want to do in town with minimal physical effort. Indeed, except for about 30 min. that we bicycle on the flat, the rest of the ride is downhill. It was planned that way and we love it ... As soon as we meet, we will go to a BIXI station for all the basic information you need to understand how to book your bike throughout your stay here, safely, and for the minimum price per day. Also, you will be informed about the types of bike paths, mistakes to avoid and safety tips you need to follow. We will be bicycling next to the University of Montreal, Mount Royal, the restaurant of the best poutine in town, the fabulous Lafontaine Park, the Olympic Stadium and Maisonneuve Park. Upon arrival, if you wish, we could enjoy a well deserve ice cream cone in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve district.

Lynne

I have always been described as a person open to the world, dynamic and passionate. It's been almost 8 years that I share my love of Montreal with all my Airbnb visitors. It happened several times that I introduce the bike paths to my guests, but I couldn't always do it, because I was working full time, which is no longer the case. I realized how the BIXI bike-sharing system is not well known, or that the tourist are afraid of misunderstanding how it works or did not see the enormous advantages of this type of transport in my town. Indeed, riding a bike to better discover Montreal is really great and very profitable for tourists. I listened to my Airbnb guests who strongly encouraged me to suggest this experience to all visitors.
