right to move / la voie libre
promoting cycling as an accessible and environmental transportation alternative
Right to Move (RTM) is typically open weekday evenings from 6-9 pm, and certain weekend days (currently Saturday) from 2-5 pm. From January 25, 2014, the Girl's Night in (GNi) shift is back on. It is expected to continue to occur once monthly, on the last Saturday of the month. Watch this space, or see: "Girl's Night In".
RTM also hosts occasional intensive workshop tutorials and other events. RTM is closed exceptionally from time to time, and members are notified of such occasions via a mailing list. RTM tends to be open on holidays.
RTM is located in the alley between Bishop and Mackay, below Sherbrooke o. (see the pop-up map (javascripted) or the RTM/Lvl section of this page). The nearest metro station is Guy-Concordia; generally, you can transport your bicycle on the Metro (subway) on weekends all day, and on weekdays from 10-3 pm, and from 7 pm onward.
On this page, you'll find a compiled list of Montreal community bike shops, with complete information, including local maps. The information here is maintained on a 'reasonable-effort' basis only.
For a wider perspective, Montreal's Community Bike Shops is a cumulative map of local not-for-profit shops offering instruction and bicycle maintenance and repair facilities to the general public. Globally, there's an open collaboration map available showing community bicycle organizations world-wide.
