An exciting bike trip exploring local history, architecture, secret spots and building stones.

Antoine road that leads to Leonard Cohen’s boyhood home, glides downhill through the Glen to McAuslan Brewery for a tasting of 5 different micro-brews, and finishes with the ghosts of Griffintown.

Includes the popular booklet What Building Stones Tell and beer tasting at the McAuslan Brewery with fresh market bread, fruit and cheese.
