Lachine Canal to South Shore

Monday, Sept 3, 2001: Labour Day Ride to South Shore

I set off for a ride along the South Shore. My goal was to ride along the section I had not yet seen, from St. Lambert around to the Cote Ste. Catherine Locks, whence I would return along the Seaway Dike and the Champlain Ice Bridge.

The first leg of the trip brought me to the Lachine Canal at the new Cote St. Paul access point, at the St. Remi Tunnel. I rode east along the north bank until I came to the new footbridge, whence I crossed over to the south bank. I continued along the trail to the Harbour End, where I picked up the trail heading out towards the Expo Islands.

That year there was a project to put floating art along the Canal. I got the last glimpses of open sky to the east of the Atwater Market, as the construction crews closed in. Work on re-excavating the Peel Basin, which I had first seen in June, was progressing quite well.
