I'm in Montreal for the week due to a science conference, but I won't let that keep me from blogging about trails. After being in the city for less than a day, I already had an idea for what to write about: things Arkansas' cities could copy from Montreal.
1) Montreal has dedicated bike lanes. These are something I've written about the need for multiple times before, here and here.
2) The city also has a thriving bikeshare program that allows tourists or people without bikes to rent bikes by the hour, day, month, or year and drop them off at any station around town. As you can see on their website, they have bike stations every few blocks in the more densely populated parts of town.
a free botanical garden (see San Francisco) is the way to go given the existing paved trails, central location, and proximity to the zoo.
