The Tour de l'Île will be passing through Montreal West and we will be there to cheer cyclists on! Participants will be going west along Broughton down Ballantyne S. to Avon towards Ville St-Pierre. The first cyclists should be coming through around 9:15 a.m. and the last ones will make their way around 12:15 p.m.

Activities

We’ve organized special activities for the kids on Broughton between Ballantyne S. and Westminster. We will have face painting, an inflatable game, arts and crafts and a bike workshop where kids can learn about basic bike maintenance. There will be a bike obstacle course for children to try out. Drop by from 10-11:30 a.m. and help cheer on the cyclists as they pass through our Town.

Road closures

The following roads will be closed on June 2nd starting at 9:00 a.m. and are expected to reopen around 12:15 p.m.

  • Broughton Rd (between Elmhurst Ave and Westminster S. Ave)
  • Ballantyne S. Ave (between Broughton Rd and Avon Rd)

Plan your outings!

We suggest that residents avoid taking their cars during this time as traffic will be difficult. Those who must get around by car should check a map of all road closures on the Island of Montreal to best plan their itinerary.
