Bike path linking Montréal to Sainte-Catherine fully reopens

One of the rare places where you can cross the Saint Lawrence River by bike, the approximately 14 km long path is a marked trail reserved for cyclists only.

The bike path linking Montréal / Saint-Lambert / Champlain Bridge Estacade / Sainte-Catherine is now fully reopened. The announcement was made on Saturday April 10 by the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau (SPJD).

One of the rare places where you can cross the Saint Lawrence River by bike, the approximately 14 km long path is a marked trail reserved for cyclists only. Part of The Great Trail and Route Verte, the path also offers a multitude of spectacular views of the city’s downtown core..

The detour on the Victoria Bridge will be continued this season for users of the bike path. Cyclists must use the safe passage section of the traffic lane because the cycling overpass is still unusable, the SPJD advises. Structural problems detected on the overpass forced its closure last year.

“The detour will enable cyclists, notably from Saint Lambert, to have a direct access to Parc Jean-Drapeau when they want to head toward Montréal, rather than having to use the multi-purpose pathways on the Champlain and Jacques-Cartier Bridges,” read the statement.
