Winter Montreal cycling route

winter cycling route

To welcome cyclists all year round, the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau will be providing a winter Montreal cycling route between the Jacques-Cartier and Concorde Bridges. The winter bike trail, which will cross île Sainte-Hélène by going through a combination of multi-purpose and vehicular roadways, will have snow removal on a regular basis so cyclists can enjoy safe travels all winter long. Blue signs with snowflakes will inform cyclists of the route to use.

Please note the biking overpass that uses the Saint Lambert locks is closed during the winter months. Cyclists coming from Saint Lambert who want to cross over toward Montréal can use the multi-purpose pathways of the Jacques-Cartier and Samuel-de-Champlain Bridges.

  1. Since Monday, December 7, the markings denoting the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve bike path have been removed, and this is no longer being maintained for usage by sports enthusiasts. For the entire winter period, vehicular traffic will now be two-way traffic between the top of the Pavillon de la Tunisie and the Pavillon du Canada; 
  2. The South Shore bike path, including the Saint-Lambert locks, are closed since, December 6.

Cyclists wishing to continue to do bike riding via the Parc this winter will have to share the road with vehicular traffic: motorists and cyclists are urged to be careful. The SPJD publishes notices pertaining to mobility on the relevant pages of its website, and invites users to regularly check parcjeandrapeau.com to properly plan their travels.
