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.

On the one hand, there are museums, theatres, art galleries, restaurants and a casino; and on the other, there are mountains, trails galore and parks that seem to go on forever. People often say that the Outaouais offers the best
of both worlds—city and country—as anyone who cycles here can attest. Gatineau and its Ontario counterpart, Ottawa, share a vast cycling network that is linked to long regional routes such as the Parc linéaire de la Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, the new Louis-Joseph-Papineau trail and the Cycloparc PPJ-Pontiac, which provide travellers
on the Route verte with access to hundreds of kilometres of trails.
Made up of two dramatically different bikeways, the Route verte first unwinds alongside the lazy Ottawa River, an idyllic route that includes the Sentier des Voyageurs and Parc national de Plaisance. Then, much further north, it heads for the wilderness between the gates of Parc La Vérendrye and the Abitibi region, where it cuts through some ruggedly beautiful wild landscapes.
