Bike Rides and Road Trips, a Matchless Duo!
May 01 2016, Marie-Andrée Boisvert
Summer is almost upon us, although to many, it’s already arrived. It’s time to prepare our summer trips. To do this, I suggest a driving and cycling duo to spice up your weekends or vacation days.
This summer, try the experience of sightseeing by car, but bring your bike along to discover the most beautiful trails. Without further ado, here is a list of destinations to practice your driving-cycling duo.
Labelle and Mont-Laurier
The P’tit Train du Nord bike trail, sector 3, between Labelle and Mont-Laurier, is a paved 88 km trail for cycling and rollerblading. It features numerous lakes and rivers along the length of the trail with many services nearby.

Discover the traveller’s trail! This track starts in Aylmer crossing the Gatineau in its entirety. The services are accessible and the trail has a length of 30 km on fairly flat terrain.

The Estriade bike path is the most popular route consisting of a loop of about 50 km. The track is paved and a wide variety of scenery serves as a backdrop during our escape.

Do you know the Véloroute des Bleuets? This beautiful bike path is found in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region by going around the lake area. The track is combined with a set of bike paths, paved shoulders and shared paved road over a distance of 272 km. There are several cities to visit, so we’ll take a few days for our trip.

In the National-Capital region, enjoy the coastal corridor, the bike path that runs along the St. Lawrence River from one end of Quebec City to the other. The route starts near the Pont de Quebec bridge up to Montmorency Falls.

During the summer, take the opportunity to discover bike trails with varied and stunning scenery as a family, a couple, or why not between friends!
