Montreal turns to pedal power
I've hired a bike while staying in hostels in various places in the past just so I can cover more ground than I otherwise would.
And tourist chiefs in Montreal certainly seem to be aware of this sort of benefit, as they are hosting their 25th Bike Fest this month.
It's been described as "offering participants a unique experience in exploring their surroundings" and certainly could be a fun way for anyone staying in hostels to check out the city and the terrain.
But if that doesn't float your boat, a new BIKI - part bike, part taxi - has been introduced as a cheap travel option for anyone wanting to see the sights of Montreal.
Music lovers who take a trip in early July, meanwhile, will be able to take in the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal (French for jazz festival I believe) and its 370 free outdoor concerts.
