Get some exercise, explore the city and meet locals . . . by bike! It all started on May 12, 2009. Montréal has a brand new public bike system that will make it that much easier for tourists – and Montrealers – to take a spin around town. For only $5 a day, you can pick up a bike at any one of the 300 BIXI stations scattered about town. It’s easy. Just swipe your credit card in the solar-powered station and type in the code to unlock your BIXI bike. When you’re done with the bike, simply return it to the station closest to your destination. This is great news, considering Montréal is one of North America’s most cyclist-friendly cities. I took a BIXI bike for a ride on Monday and put together a little video of my favourite bike routes in Montreal! A definite must-see!
