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.


MURA Restaurant Group

Would you like to discover new restaurants? Please join other MURA members for dining experiences. These will include lunches and suppers that will be at mostly BYO restaurants.

These will occur Tuesday-Friday of the last week of each month. A participant will be responsible for coordinating a visit each month.
