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.

Nature, authenticity and rural life—these are the hallmarks of the Lanaudière region. Nestled between the Laurentians, the Mauricie area and the St. Lawrence River, it also has a rich heritage, including some of the very first seigniorial estates established in New France. Traversed from east to west by the Chemin du Roy, it also boasts an impressive succession of ancestral homes, old mills and churches that stubbornly withstand the march of time. Rustic and sometimes even quite wild, the landscapes of the Lanaudière remain largely untouched, making the region an ideal place to start exploring the essential components of Québec’s natural splendour: plains, mountains, peat bogs, forests, marshes, falls, rapids, lakes and white water. In fact, some people refer to this area as “Québec in miniature.” A regional route in Berthierville even provides access to the intriguing Sorel Islands, Québec’s own “bayou.”

des Transports du Québec, le gouvernement du Québec et des partenaires régionaux.
