"Freezing, snowy, hilly Montreal," you well note, Jason. And also a city famous for it's agressive drivers.

Montreal would seem in many ways to be an unlikely city for any sort of cycling base, but there it is. And if they can do it ... well, surely, we could, too, right? Can I get an 'amen'?

I will note, however, two things that Montreal has going for it in terms of a down-town cycling base ...

  • several downtown campuses with a large student population to go with them
  • cross-town streets which are not expressways

That said, I still think that much of our relative disadvantage is simply political will.
