We suggest a 38.7-kilometre bike route in the West Island: from Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue at the western tip, it will take you all the way to Verdun via Baie-D’Urfé, Beaconsfield, Pointe-Claire and Dorval, as well as the boroughs of Lachine and LaSalle.

You’ll ride along the river for most of the trip and can stop at one of the many riverside parks to take a break or refuel with a snack.

The route in 3 stages

From Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue to Lachine, you’ll take a road that changes its name several times along the way: Rue Lakeshore, Boulevard Beaconsfield, Chemin Bord-du-Lac. From Lachine to Verdun, you’ll take the St. Lawrence waterfront cycling path.
