Maison des cyclistes
At the crossroads of two of the largest bike paths in Montréal, just a stone’s throw from popular La Fontaine Park, is Maison des cyclistes. Here, in addition to the offices of Vélo Québec, you will find a café — featuring regular bike trip lectures —, a boutique and a bicycle travel agency.
In the heart of Plateau-Mont-Royal, the café offers Italian coffee, along with croissants, bagels, fresh fruit, baguettes, soups, salads, Panini’s, sandwiches and desserts, which you can pair with a beer or glass of wine. You can use its WI-FI access point to surf the Web at any time, and during the warm weather, you can enjoy its friendly terrace on either the shady or sunny side.
Whether for yourself or to give as a gift, the boutique features a wide range of publications, including maps, books, guides and magazines, as well as numerous bike accessories: active lighting, locks, cyclometers, pumps, tools and, of course, the popular and very useful parking racks — see the article at montoit.cyberpresse.ca and the price list.
Benchmark in its field since 1995, the agency helps over 6,000 people realize their dream biking trips each year. Its team of cycling enthusiasts offer you more than 70 destinations, in Québec and throughout the world, where you benefit from outstanding supervision while remaining “free as the air”.
