The Bike Link is a safe, well-maintained marked trail of about 14 kms, reserved for bicycles. The bike path links Montréal, Parc Jean-Drapeau, Île des Soeurs and the South Shore municipalities: it is one of the rare spots where you can cross the Saint Lawrence River on your bike.
The Bike Link segment at Parc Jean-Drapeau is a place where nature, public art and heritage venues converge. There are many facilities along the bike path on the Saint-Hélène and Notre-Dame islands, such as an Information center, washrooms, picnic spots and even a service area.
216,203 crossings were recorded in 2018.
