A wealth of laid-out trails run along île Sainte-Hélène, providing a link-up to the various access routes to the facilities, installations and services at Parc Jean-Drapeau.
A lot of cyclists already use the most visible trail along Chemin Macdonald, which serves as a link between the Jacques-Cartier and Concorde Bridges so cyclists can get to the Bike Link and Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve.
But even more than that, the trails’ extended network allows visitors to easily get around to every part of the island, safely and efficiently. This means you can ride your bike on the natural trails of Mont Boullé and explore the riverside walkway for a look at the gorgeous views of downtown Montréal and the Saint Lawrence River, take a peaceful stroll on Espace 67, and do all sorts of other activities.
To promote active mobility, the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau will be providing a winter bike path between the Jacques-Cartier and Concorde Bridges. This winter layout, which goes through a combination of all-purpose and vehicular routes, will have snow removal on a regular basis.
Blue signage, with the depiction of a bike and snowflakes, indicate the route to follow.
Since September 1st 2021
In order to participate in the activity, the vaccination passport is not required for persons 13 years of age and over.
