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.

Partly in the flat St. Lawrence Plain and partly in the hilly heart of the Appalachians, the Centre-du-Québec region allows you to explore vast expanses of rural Québec whether you choose to cycle down a remote country road or along the peaceful Saint-François River. A region of dairy farms, fine cheese makers, sugar bushes and venerable antique dealers, it offers rolling fields, the dense Bois-Francs forests, cranberry bogs, gardens in full flower, untamed nature and a host of rural traditions.

Two Route verte bikeways run through the Centre-du-Québec region. The first of them (#4) zigzags from north to south, from Bécancour (across from Trois-Rivières) to the Montérégie region by way of the Circuit des traditions and the very fragrant Drummond forest, which is home to numerous species of trees. The other route, the incomparable Parc linéaire des Bois-Francs, links Chaudière-Appalaches and the Eastern Townships between Lyster and Tingwick.

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.
