3 and 4 day tours from Vermont to Montreal which take place in early June. All rides converge in Montreal at the same hotel in time for Sunday's Tour de L'ile, a 30 mile loop around the island which attracts upwards of 20,000 people.

Route Verte system of bike trails is a myriad of off road bike paths, on-road separated lanes, and rides through low trafficked neighborhoods. Our day's ride showcased all of these plus one dangerous intersection. At that point we split into two groups: some went ahead while two riders explored a safer alternative and eventually caught up with the lead riders.

I was delighted to attend the preview of this 4 day bike adventure. In two weeks I will be riding sweep, advising with directions, performing minor repairs, and providing lots of encouragement. Let's hope the weather is wonderful.
