South Shore Bike Link and Route verte

This is one of the few places where you can cross the Saint Lawrence River by bike. It allows you to travel between the island of Montréal, the Saint‑Lambert locks and the South Shore municipalities.

The land link between Île Notre‑Dame and the seaway dike was built in 1990 and is part of the Trans Canada Trail and the Route verte.

More than 120,000 crossings were recorded in 2017.
