Montreal Snow Storm Biking

Montreal is known for people biking during its harsh winters. You'll find anything from old bikes to fixies going at it in the snow, slush and ice covered streets. The sometime Arctic cold is not even a deterrent for most.

Yesterday however was another story with the biggest snow storm to hit the City in the last 41 years, 45 cm of snow on the same day. I went about most of the downtown and Plateau area to find one lone cyclist pushing her ride off to the sidewalk. Most bikes were snowed in for the day. Enjoy the pictures I took while walking about in the storm.







I'd like to wish a Happy New Year and all the best for the Holidays.

Ride safe and free.

Gerry :)

Wow! That's a lotta snow! We got off pretty easy here in T.O., but poor Jay had an arduous 12 hr train trip getting from St-Hyacinthe back to Toronto yesterday!

Happy New Year & Happy Cycling!
