I'm afraid I am woefully ignorant of Montreal and Quebec. The only thing that I know specifically is that Arkel in Sherbrooke makes some of the best panniers in the world. IMHO. I will be boosting he Canadian economy by about $900 US in the near future.

Apart from basic geography, I know nothing about Texas either so no worries. I buy all the inventory for our company and on on average day I drop about 22K into the US economy.

Montreal is a pretty good biking city. Lots of waterfront bike paths with interesting places to explore. You would probably like it.

Waterfront bike paths, interesting places to explore. Hmmmm. Yup, sounds like my kind of place. And obviously a very good place for photography.

There some really great pics in here.

I'll see if I can't get the pics of the old jail through the chain link a little later.
