1. The Estriade (Eastern Townships)
As its name suggests, this bike path is in the beautiful Eastern Townships region. This circuit is a fully paved 97 km loop across various natural landscapes, such as valleys, fields and shorelines, and is easy enough to be enjoyed by the entire family.
2. The Véloroute des Bleuets (Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean)
With its gently sloping and mostly flat route, this 256 km cycling path is perfect for shorter legs—so long as you haven’t planned on a day-long peddling expedition! The itinerary runs through approximately fifteen villages and towns. An ideal opportunity to admire houses and uncover your dream home if you happen to be interested in relocating to the area!
3. The Voie Maritime Bicycle Path (Montreal)
With the city of Montreal as a backdrop, this is the one for taking great selfies. This route allows you to travel across the island via the Champlain Bridge and provides the best views of the southern shore. And thanks to the metropolis’s dynamic character, it’s sure to be an exciting journey throughout! Have a bite to eat at a local restaurant or a quick chat with passersby during your breaks.
4. The Véloroute des Baleines (Côte-Nord)
The more athletic and adventurous among us will want to make the trip to Route 138, between Tadoussac and Baie-Comeau to be more exact, to test their mettle against this high intensity cycling path. Wending its way between the sea on one side and the mountains on the other, this 300 km route is composed of curves, sharp descents, and steep climbs that will get your quads pumping. In return, you will be rewarded by spectacular and restful views of the St-Lawrence River. Plus, you may even be fortunate enough to see certain species of whales, such as the blue whale and beluga.
