I’m currently in the midst of satisfying a curiosity with the entire region surrounding the old Soulanges canal, West of the island of Montréal, between Pointe-des-Cascades and Les Coteaux. This zone is amazing for its cycling possibilities. On this outing, I parked along the Soulanges canal, riding a few kilometers past the old power station at Les Cedres, along the Digue Coteau 4 and across three power dams into the town of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield. From Valleyfield, I continued to stretch my legs along the Saint-Lawrence Seaway to the first bridge on its Beauharnois canal. Running out of light, I had to turn around, but a new world of exploration has opened up to me now!
