The Mcgill University administration has of late come under criticism for their cycling restrictions in their downtown campus. Scenes of security guards enforcing the rules are now common. However, despite the on campus restrictions, Mcgill students are fortunate to have several cycling links from the city to their campus. The Mcgill Ghetto is crisscrossed with designated bands. The southern and eastern flanks of the campus are served by the Maisonneuve and Park ave bike paths respectively. Over on the other side of Mont Royal, the University of Montreal’s students are not so lucky. Although there are no restrictive measures in place on the campus, there are absolutely no cycling lanes in the streets that surround the campus. Its quite amazing that the largest francophone university in the country does not have a single lane of cycling paths to connect it to the city that surrounds it.Perhaps change is in the air for the cyclists of UdM. Outremont has recently announced that there will be a bicycle path on Cote saint Catherine, and the borough of CDN-NDG has presented a comprehensive bicycle network to their citizens. Hopefully these lofty plans will be acted upon.
