Exploring Montreal with Bikes (EMWB) is a new guidebook for local bicyclists whether they are looking for fun places to ride, ways to get to work, or where to watch bike races. The book details some 20 recommended recreational rides around Montreal, listing attractions along the way and distances traveled. It also gives extensive information about how to reduce your carbon footprint by commuting to work on a bike. More explicitly, EMWB lists 11 bridges to Montreal Island and four bridges between Laval and the north shore, all of which can be crossed by bicycle, as well as giving information about eight local ferries that take cyclists across the St. Lawrence River, the Ottawa River, or the Riviere des Prairies. Also listed are ways to cross Highways 20 and 40 by bicycle and how to get to Pierre Trudeau Airport with your bike without doing anything illegal or dangerous. As well, EMWB lists local bike races, beginning with February’s Coupe des Glaces and including the Montreal Women’s World (Road) Cup and the Mardis Cyclistes Saputo, all of which are exciting—and free—to watch. EMWB also makes many references to Quebec’s 4,300-km Route verte--the longest biking network in North America—that will be inaugurated this August.

The book is written by John Symon, together with Robert Silverman. Symon is the author of several popular local guidebooks (Exploring Montreal with Kids, Guide le Petit Fouineur, and Lobster Kids’ Guide to Exploring Montreal) and is the Quebec correspondent for Pedal Magazine, Canada’s premiere cycling publication. Silverman is the co-founder and president of the bicycle lobby group, Le Monde à Bicyclette and a local champion for bicycle facilities.

The book launch will take place at Coles Bookstore in Cavendish Mall at 5800 Cavendish Blvd on Saturday, August 4, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

A book signing for EMWB will take place in the café and boutique of la Maison des cyclistes—Montreal’s premiere destination for information about bicycling—on Sunday, August 5, 2007 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. La Maison des cyclistes, at 1251 Rachel Street E, is operated by Velo Quebec, the group that oversees the Route verte.

Exploring Montreal with Bikes has 95 pages, retails for $10.95, and is published by Vivva City/Price Patterson. It will also be available in all fine book stores.

PRESS RELEASE

June 29, 2006

Re: The Montreal Lobster Guide is back!

In 2000, Montreal writer John Symon published The Lobster Kids’ Guide to Exploring Montréal and Guide Petit Fouineur Six years later, John and “Exploring Montreal” are back, this time under the Vivva City banner (a division of local Montreal publisher Price-Patterson Ltd.). The fully revised and updated edition of this Gazette #1 bestseller is called:

Exploring Montreal with Kids by John Symon

1-896881-89-0 · 222 pages · Retail price: $19.95

The book will be launched on:

Saturday July 22, 2006 from 3 pm to 4 pm

Babar en ville, Montreal’s specialist in children’s books

1235A Greene Ave, Westmount, QC (514) 931-0606

This book is made for parents, educators and grandparents, whether they be Montreal residents, visitors or tourists. There are some 500 ideas for local, family-friendly outings. Most of the destinations described are within a one-hour drive of downtown, including a few attractions in northern New York State, Vermont, and in eastern Ontario. These range from the obvious (e.g. La Ronde) to the overlooked (e.g. St. Lambert locks) to the unexpected (e.g. an amusement park with 50 life-size dinosaur replicas). With the chapters organized by theme and a helpful index, it’s easy to find out about:

* Waterslides, pools, indoor gyms;
* Zoos and places with animals;
* Museums that really cater to kids;
* Parks;
* Children’s film and theatre;
* Places to learn.

There are also plenty of tips and information about each activity or site: is there a place to eat? Is there a playground? Cost. Directions. The best time to go. Suggested activities when you do get there. What’s nearby?
