Soon, some 40,000 cyclists will descend upon Montréal for the Go Bike Montréal Festival. The world’s largest cycling festival welcomes pedal pushers of all ages and abilities that celebrate human-powered transportation on routes throughout the city. Kicking things off is the Metropolitan Challenge, during which participants set their own paces and travel distances, from 75 to 150 kilometers. Folks continue to spin their wheels at other notable events, including the Tour la Nuit, where costumed riders outfitted for nocturnal cruising enjoy an evening of revelry. The two-wheeled adventures conclude with the 30th annual Tour de l’Île de Montréal, where ambitious athletes have the opportunity to circumnavigate the entire island city.
