We’ll pick you up anywhere in the city and then drive to our inn, an 18th century water mill set in beautiful forest above the river. Our warm-up ride meanders along the rural roads of Quebec.
As we roll out of the inn, it’s time for an easy day of bicycling. Quebec’s country roads offer something to explore before joining the Route Verte to ride along the banks of the mighty inland sea. Stop and visit a charming maritime museum, lunch in the delightful Café Libellule and then take the tour of the Seigneurie grist mill and manor house.
As our Quebec Bike Tour continues, we leave our Auberge and follow some inland roads before descending to the river at La Pocatiere. We ride through Kamouraska, listed as one of the most beautiful villages in Quebec, and stop for a late afternoon microbrew on the deck of Brasserie Breughel. Then it’s on to St. Andre to our home for the next two days, the elegant La Sollailerie.
From the picturesque village of St. Andre we offer a number of ride options. If you enjoy bicycling Quebec on flatter and easier routes, take the Route Verte along the river through the bustling little city of Riviere du Loup. You can beat the prevailing winds and take a shuttle back to the inn. For a more challenging ride, climb into the mountains behind the town and ride forested roads and tracks before an exhilarating descent back to St. Andre.
After a morning transfer back towards Quebec City, we ride the bike route along the Chaudiere River. Picnic on divine Quebec cheeses beside a rushing waterfall before we ride on into the city following the Parcours des Anses, a two lane bike highway along the St. Laurent. We’ll take a ferry ride that brings us into the heart of Quebec.
Today we ride out of the city to the spectacular Montmorency Falls. Here we can take a cable car or follow the trail across the top of the falls and learn some of the fascinating history. Take it easy and bike back to explore the city streets or join your guides for a guided biking tour of the extensive bike network that covers the city.
We get up early for a morning ride through the streets of the old city and up onto the Plains of Abraham, site of the pivotal battle for supremacy in North America between the French and English in 1759. Our Quebec bike tour concludes with a trip back to the inn for another exquisite breakfast before returning home.
