Montreal could become a World Class Bicycling City, one of the best cities in the world for cycling. A place where cycling takes a major role in the urban transportation network. It could also slip back into the era when cycling infrastructure was ignored, automobiles became dominant on the streets and cycling's history almost forgotten. The Montreal Bicycle Club seeks promote cycling on the Island of Montreal by celebrating its early history, increasing its visibility by having club rides throughout the island, and drawing attention to issues that affect cycling today. All those who are riders or "friends of the wheel" are welcome to join.
