Biking this Week

With this fantastic weather upon us, time to switch gears from moaning and complaining about the snow and to take advantage of every minute spring and summer offers.

For the most part, all the city’s bike paths are open. Not all the posts are up protecting the paths (I’m thinking of Rachel near St-Laurent) Not all the paths are clear.. lots of dust and dirt but you can ride them without much fuss.

For those who have started training outside, Camilien Houde still has quite a bit of run off from the unmelted snow. There’s lots of dirt and water and you need to be careful when coming down as it’s quite slippery. I suspect that by Monday most of this will be taken care of. There still seems to be quite a bit of snow off the road causing this run off though..

The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is wide open and lots of people have started training on it. All the run off there should be gone.

The first bike race of the year is this weekend in Pont Rouge.

It’s a race open to all from Pee-Wee to Masters. If you’ve never raced it, it’s a false flat out, a very slight climb at the half way mark and a false flat all the way back.. That’s one lap.

If you have any amateur sporting events you’d like publicized, please drop me a line and I would be more then willing to post it weekly.

Now get out there and enjoy this weather.
