Pointe des Cascades

Côte St. Catherine Park
Cycling Day Trips
Spring - Fall

We meet every two weeks on Tuesday mornings for cycling enthusiasts to visit some of the many excellent cycle paths around Montreal. If the weather allows, we will continue until Thanksgiving. Participants would need to have their own bike and a way to transport it to the path location. Suggestions for venues would be the Parc des Iles de Boucherville, the Soulanges Canal, The Beauharnois Canal, the Petit Train du Nord and the many paths in the Eastern Townships. These are all off-road dedicated paths, easy cycling (not Tour de France style), and within an easy drive of Montreal (as long as the various bridges are functional). If you are interested please send an email to MURA.

Book Club

We have an enthusiatic group of at least 12 readers who meet on the afternoon of the first Monday of each month. We have chosen to read Canadian books for the next year and have developed an eclectic list, one for each month. Locations for the meetings will vary.
