Tour la Nuit, Friday, May 30
Whether you are participating for the first or the umpteenth time, it’s always a revelation! You experience the beauty and energy of nocturnal Montréal at its best. Costumed cyclists on colourful bikes pedal 20 kilometres of city streets in the warm June air.
This large biking celebration is also celestial. The ambient light is beautiful against the blue and black of the twilight sky, creating a cool and luminous ambiance. And the smiling faces of the 17,000 participants are also a divine sight.
Start: Parc-La Fontaine Avenue, from 8:15 p.m.
Route of 20 km
Finish: Parc Jeanne-Mance
Be visible at night...
Taking part in the festivities also means ensuring you are visible and equipping your bike with proper lights. The Highway Safety Code stipulates that a bicycle must be equipped with the following reflectors: white (at the front), red (at the rear and on the back wheel) and amber (on the front wheel and the pedals). And you must also have an active lighting system (white headlight and red light at the rear). Watch the video clip Être visible.
