5000 km de la Route verte

The Route verte puts all of Quebec within reach of your handlebars!

Made up of over 5,000 km of bikeways criss-crossing the most beautiful regions of Quebec, the Route verte puts you on the right track for the vacation of your dreams. No matter which bikeway you cycle on—the Parcours des Anses in Lévis, the Véloroute des Bleuets encircling Lac Saint-Jean, the Berri Street bike path in Montreal or the Estriade in the Eastern Townships—you’re riding on the Route verte.

This vast bicycle route—the most extensive in North America—includes all types of bikeways: bike paths, designated shared roadways and paved shoulders.

Land of prospectors and pioneers, Abitibi-Témiscamingue is very much in keeping with people’s larger-than-life conceptions of Québec: wild forests, deep lakes, endless skies and magnificent northern lights. Shaped by glaciers and history, the region has seen a gold rush, the fur trade and a massive influx of Depression-era settlers over the years. Nowadays, outdoor and wildlife enthusiasts flock to the region to explore open spaces, reconnect with Mother Nature, admire unspoiled scenery and observe the rich and abundant array of flora and fauna.

This region, known as the “48th north,” is either the start or end point of the Route verte. It starts with the 45-kilometre Ligne du Mocassin, which follows an abandoned railway corridor and cuts through some breathtaking farmland, and then continues for 30 kilometres through the Parc linéaire Rouyn-Noranda– Taschereau, an ideal destination for cycling enthusiasts.

La Route verte est une idée originale de Vélo Québec réalisée avec le ministère
des Transports du Québec, le gouvernement du Québec et des partenaires régionaux.
