Bicycle Rides about Town
Along the Lachine Canal

The Lachine Canal Bicycle Path has been a perennial feature of my cycling experience since its opening back in the early 1980s. There has not passed a Summer since that I have not ridden along parts of this path at least once. It has served as the first leg of many of my longer trips, including the cold, rainy morning of my first adult long-distance ride in 1990.

This Lite Version does not contain much of the material I amassed for my own personal copy, as it belongs to other sources and cannot be presented by me on the Web. Below is the original description of contents

Below are four treatments of the Lachine Canal. In the first are 'studies' I have made, including historical maps, historical photos, the original bike trail plans, and Parks Canada maps from both before and after the recent renovations. In the 'Composite' section I have pulled some of this material together with my own photos and commentary, treating the Canal section by section. Under 'Rides and Visits' are the same photos, arranged as they were taken. Finally, under 'Supplementary Materials' can be found supporting information from various sources.
