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.

It’s hard to know where to begin in the Chaudière-Appalaches region. Should you start with the beautiful Parcours des Anses, which dances around the tip of Île d’Orléans before moving further along the St. Lawrence? Or should you instead treat yourself to a peaceful foray on the Véloroute de la Chaudière, which runs straight through two small valleys and the Appalachian Mountains? Or what about the Parc linéaire Le Grand Tronc and the Parc linéaire de Lotbinière, which follow an abandoned railway line to the Centre-du-Québec region?

In the Chaudière-Appalaches region, the Route verte is divided into two perpendicular axes. The east-west axis, the network’s longest riverside bikeway, starts at the splendid Parcours des Anses in Lévis and continues along to the entrance of the Lower St. Lawrence region. The second leaves Lévis and crosses the Beauce region as far as the border of Maine.
