Set your wheels in motion, along Québec’s 12,000 km of bicycle paths!

Take to the Route verte on two wheels, and speed down hills, along rivers and through the countryside. Fill your lungs with fresh air off the St. Lawrence River, stop along the way to taste local products and greet our craftspeople. At the end of the day, rest your calf muscles at a spa or lodging establishment with “Bienvenue cyclistes!” certification.


In Québec, you can cycle year-round. Fatbiking is great fun in the woods in the wintertime.
