Cycling in the Laurentians and Eastern Townships of Quebec

I was glad to have brought my bike along during my travels in Quebec, as opportunities abound for cycling adventures on La Route Verte.

Here are some views from a ride along the Aerobic Corridor between Weir and Lac-des-Seize-Iles in the Laurentians.

We finished off with a stop at Morgan's Farm for some produce to juice.

Another day, in the Eastern Townships, I rode 62 km of the Sutton Mountain Tour route.  There were some serious climbs, but worth it as I was treated to some great views of the countryside.

The rain came down hard for about 20 minutes, so I grabbed a snack and took shelter at a general store at Vale Perkins.

Mansonville has a lovely main street lined with shops, restaurants, churches, and parks.

I happened upon a market and grabbed some lunch.  I also toured an exhibit in the historic round barn seen in the background.

  1. Cycling in the Laurentians is one of the very interesting challenges isn't it, besides exercising you also get a very beautiful view. Thank you for sharing your experiences and knowledge about holidays.
