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.

Montréal boasts 350 kilometres of bikeways throughout the city. (Obviously, it wasn’t named the “best cycling city in North America” in 1999 and 2001 for nothing!) Travel back in time by exploring the historic Lachine Canal, climb Mount Royal on the Olmstead trail, take over the race track named for Gilles Villeneuve, explore Parc Jean-Drapeau and the St. Lawrence Seaway, or head west toward quiet roads that are just a stone’s throw away from the skyscrapers of the downtown core. And after a bit of exercise, the many pleasures of one of the most fun-oriented cities in the Americas will be that much more delightful!
