Last week, Max Hartshorne, editor of GoNOMAD.com, travelled north to take part in Montreal’s Tour la Nuit. The 20 kilometer course twists and turns its way through downtown Montreal and the island’s docklands. The annual event attracts more than 15,000 participants, each adorned in uniquely decorated helmets, attention-grabbing clothing and bright flashing lights. Volunteers cheer on the riders as they zoom through the blocked off streets, helping to inspire more peddling.
Riders of all ages and experience levels take part in the Tour la Nuit. At the end of the course, the bicyclists enjoy light snacks and outdoor activities and shows.
