The MURA Cycling Group turned out in force for a 25 KM ride along
a cycling path on the outskirts of Granby on July 4th. It was a superb
day for the ride, as well as simply "liming" (Trinidad vernacular for
hanging out and chatting).
Cycling Day Trips
Spring - Fall


MURA cycling enthusiasts meet weekly to visit some of the many excellent cycle paths around Montreal from end of May to October.  Participants need to have their own bike and a way to transport it to the path location. Suggestions for venues include 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.
