Day 14 Saint-Jerome to Montreal 69km

October 13, 2012

ImageGreat ride into Montreal today. The weather was sunny and warm, at least compared to yesterday. We stopped for a snack in Glanville before crossing into Laval and we stacked again in Laval, before crossing over into Montreal. The scenery was quite varied on the way in, we pedaled through fields, forests, suburbs, industrial parks and even down a train platform. The trail that we followed (La Route Vert) took us right into downtown Montreal. We found a quaint hotel to stay in just on the edge of Old Montreal. The Hotel Champs de Mars probably was a boutique hotel in the 1960’s. After we checked in we had a late lunch in the room before going out to see the city on foot.

We had a nice walk through old town and up to the train station. We found a grocery store and scouted for another hotel for Sunday night. We found one that was a little cheaper and a couple decades newer. We walked back through Chinatown and discussed eating out sometime. By the time we got back to our Hotel the rain had started so we decided it would be a good idea to have some soup in the restaurant adjacent to the Hotel. Well, the soup was amazing and decided to try the chocolate cake for dessert. It was good too. Up to the room and off to bed. Supposed to rain all day Sunday, so we will decide what to do in the morning. We had talked about going up Mont Royal, or we may ride the Metro all day…Image
