The Original Montreal Non-Touristy Pink Bike Tour
We start in the hood with the highest bike ridership in North America, at a half 3rd wave coffee shop, half bike refurbishing shop. We'll head through the Plateau to the foot of the mountain park before cruising down to catch over a dozen works of mural art in the borough with the highest concentration of artists. Works range from 2-9 storeys tall! Off to the entertainment district where the biggest festivals out there take centre stage before checking out the waterfront from a hidden spot by the port. Next is the Gaybourhood. Lively, wild, a pedestrian mall all summer long great for people watching. The main strip houses art installations, music performances and great drag bars. Picnic in a local park with a craft beer is next because... always. Last bit we pedal by typical streets with baroque balconies, winding staircases, mansarded roofs and beautiful green alleyways. We'll hit up a few more parks before we get back to the shop to share with you a list of recommendations for craft beer, local designer shopping, COOL art galleries and the best food. The essentials of travel, quoi. Other things to note: Make sure you bring a bottle of water and dress appropriately, sunscreen wouldn't hurt!

Intro to Pottery wheel
With guided, professional instruction, you'll have a fun and creative time making an item out of clay on a pottery wheel. I will show you how to work with the clay, get it ready for the wheel, center it, and eventually start shaping. Usually students can make either a small bowl, plate, mug or vase on their first try. You will get up to 30 minutes of time on the wheel which is plenty to create one item, and then you can add accents to your piece i.e. handle and you'll get to handbuild for the remainder of the time (add accents to your piece). You can take the pottery home with you the same day you make them, or—if you'd like—I can fire your work, glaze it, and ship it to you for a small fee. I also offer other experiences: canvas painting, glass fusing, hand building with clay, mosaics, glow in the dark painting, pottery painting, silkscreening. ***Drop me a note if you'd like alternate time for your appointment.****

After the initiation, we leave for an excursion on the magnificent mountain trails with their splendid view over the Appalachian range. At the halfway point, we will stop on the mountain top to take in the beautiful view. The activity ends by showing appreciation to our horse for the lovely ride. At the end, we invite you to stay a while longer and take advantage of the surroundings and our picnic area, in the event that you packed a snack.
