Biking in Parc René Levesque

Each Wednesday a group of us go out for a morning bike ride, broken up in the middle with a coffee break.  Not too onerous, and very pleasant to ride and to have a chat. 

Today we went on the bike path through Lachine to the parc René Levesque which is a little arm that juts out into the St Lawrence river.  It has a bike path as well as a pedestrian path with lots of green space and some large art works by Quebec artists.

This last shot is of two of our group riding along the Lachine bike path which follows the river all the way.  As you can see, the scenery is lovely.

A Bike Ride

Last Wednesday our bicycling group did the trail along the Soulange Canal.  It's a lovely track, well paved and mostly surrounded by foliage (ergo shade!).  It had a short life span of about 60 years which ended almost 60 years ago so some of the infrastructure is falling apart, making for some interesting design. 

Not the best light for this interesting swamp.  But rather spooky in real life.

And here we all are !
