Here is the full 4-day version of the 2009 Local Motion VerMontreal Ride.

There is a 3-day version as well. We ride up to Montreal for the annual
Tour de l'Ile.
This year is the 25th running and they expect 30,000 riders.

I've been using MapMyRide to generate the routes under the direction of Lou Bresee.
He knows where the route leaves the road and follows the excellent Route Verte paths.
Here is the section from the start of the third day -- from Granby to Chambly.

From Chambly the route is the same as that taken by the 3-day ride.
I'll post a link to the entire map when I get it.

I've also been helping out with the Local Motion Trail Finder. Todd Taylor has been doing a fabulous job making this site deep and informative.

I've been talking to municipalities and other entities that manage trails and asking them to link to the places on the Trail Finder where the trails are posted. For example, Burlington Parks and Recreation lists their Ethan Allen Park at this link. There is a link on that page to the trail maps that Local Motion volunteers put together with GPS devices and Google Earth. Here is the link.
