Actually, I don't know what Ryans used to be, other than it was an empty red brick building with a chimney at the corner of St. Remi and Saint Jaques. This is a route for anyone riding a bike from Cote des Neiges down to the Lachine Canal and back. Last night the sidewalk of Saint Jaques was blocked. There didn't appear to be any other way to get up the hill, so Lohbado went through the barricade. The freeway is a huge barrier separating the Lachine Canal from the rest of the city. There are only a few ways to access the canal, without a motor vehicle.
