Expect vehicle traffic and/or road closures in the downtown area west of
Rue Saint-Denis, and I'm not sure about the part going through a
back-alley near Des Pins and Saint-Laurent. Overall it looks OK. The
cycle path on Rachel is a good option, although one should also expect a
high volume of flowing traffic on that path.

Don't forget that you can also bring a bike on the subway network,
albeit outside of rush hour (10h-15h, and >19h). One can thus avoid
biking through the downtown area by taking the subway up to Papineau
station and from there follow the René-Lévesque / Notre-Dame path east,
and then north on Valois and De Chambly.

Having a bike at your disposal at DebConf17 is a terrific idea, as it'll
also make running errands around the venue so much easier. It could also
come in handy for one of the Day Trip options, but more on that later... ;)

Bike safe!
