It was a cyclist's paradise today in Montreal.
But it wasn't just because it was sunny.
The 30th annual Tour de l'Ile rolled out this morning involving some 30-thousand participants.
It may have been a great day for cyclists, but not so much for some motorists.
A slew of road closures meant detours and possible frustration for those behind the wheel.
"It happens once a year and bycycling is part of Montreal's DNA now and for those who wants to go from point A to B, yes it may take a little but longer by car", said Joelle Sevigny, director general of Velo Quebec, which organizes the event.
Closed roads were expected to be open again to traffic by about 4 o'clock.
