On Sunday, June 2, I'll do my OWN Tour de l'Île
In its 29th year, this great cycling classic is expanding, offering no fewer than five route options.
25 km, 50 km and 50 km Express
25 or 50 km: the classic formula allowing cyclists to bike on streets closed to motorists and reclaim the city at their own pace across 8 boroughs.
50 km Express: the accelerated version of Tour de l’Île de Montréal where cyclists travel at 30 km/h for 1 hours on closed-off downtown streets.
Start: boulevard Saint-Joseph, from 9:15 a.m.
Rest areas: km 17, km 30 and km 38 (km 11 on the 25 km route)
Finish: Olympic Park’s Esplanade
100 km DécouvertE (SOLD OUT)
The morning route allowing cyclists to literally bike around the island and discover the Montreal shoreline. The first 70 km take place on a marked route open to motorists and the last 30 km on the regular car-free route of the Tour de l’Île.
Start : boulevard Saint-Joseph, 7:00 a.m.– 7:30 a.m.
Rest areas: km 36 (open streets portion) and access to 2 rest areas of the Tour de l'île
Finish : Olympic Park’s Esplanade
Please note: Cyclists who take part in the 100-km must integrate into the closed-off route of the Tour de l'Île de Montréal for the last 30 km by 1 p.m.
