Return of the BIXI

Posted by Margot / April 3, 2011

Montreal Bixi bicycle bike cycling spring ignatieffIf you're like thousands of other Montrealers, you might still be a bit hesitant to put your boots away and pack your scarf into the closet. After all, remember that freak snowstorm in mid-May 2007? I do.

But let's be optimists: it's April. Spring is finally springing, and what better evidence than the Bixi stands popping up around the city. Sure, I haven't seen an actual bike yet, but they'll come, at first in fits and spurts, then in droves. Heck, maybe they'll even get them to Parc Ex and NDG this summer.

For anyone thinking of hopping aboard their two-wheeled steed, remember to wear a helmet, look both ways before you cross the street, and don't be a jerk. And for you hardcores who cycled through the winter, I have one word: "Wow." (And perhaps a second: "Congrats.")
