At all times, respect bicycle safety rules. BIXI Montréal strongly encourages users to wear helmets and bright colours, to be as visible as possible. Helmets are not mandatory in Quebec on standard bicycles, and although the provincial government enforces the law, helmets are recommended by the SAAQ.
The selected stations are mainly located near snow-cleared bicycle paths, which will make it easier for users to get around.
We also invite users to visit Vélo Québec's L'hiver à vélo page, which provides many tips and tricks on good 4-season cycling behaviour.
