Montreal, Canada

Like Minneapolis, Montreal is a northern destination with a lively bike culture. With 300 miles of trails throughout the city, including paths that pass through tourist centers likes Old Montreal and the downtown area, there is certainly an infrastructure here to make bicycle-powered sightseeing possible. 

Montreal boasts a number of dedicated bike paths, some with lane lines similar to those seen on roads. The bike scene does not slow down in winter, with the city removing snow from paths, sometimes even faster than it is plowed from the streets.
