Riding the Ile Notre Dame Loop During River/Old Port Ride

Sunday, July 7, 2002

Write Up

I set out for a ride of moderate length on this sunny, Sunday afternoon. First I rode down to the Lachine Canal Locks along the Lachine Canal Bike Path. I then descended the river along the Riverfront Bike path. Along the way, I stopped at a bike store and bought some new handlebar uprights. I also checked out the LaSalle Commuter Train Station for the first time. At its end, I took the path over to Nun's Island, where I rode down to the end of the island and returned.

I crossed over the Champlain Ice Bridge to the Seaway Causeway and rode east to the St. Lambert Locks. I then crossed back into the city via Ile Notre Dame and the Concorde Bridge.

I followed the Bike Paths down to the Old Port and rode east to the Clock Tower. I took a photo of the old Harbour Police Station, which was timely as they subsequently tore it down. I rode back via the Lachine Canal, after a quick photo detour at Wellington & Bridge Streets. I left the Canal at Notre Dame Boulevard and returned home over the Turcot Yards.
