Spring is here: the season to take a look at the bikes we put away all those months ago and get them ready for another season of riding through the city dodging cars and skateboarders.

Call for Signatures The City of Montreal adopted the “Déclaration désignant Montréal Ville Sanctuaire” on 20 February 2017.
