A PORTION OF LA ROUTE DES CHAMPS BIKE PATH WILL BE TEMPORARILY CLOSED
As of June 4, the MRC of Rouville will proceed to the complete closure of a portion of its cycle path La Route des Champs. Repair and paving work is behind this temporary closure.
The MRC of Rouville is obliged to completely close a portion of its La Route des Champs bike path located between Sainte-Marie Street in Marieville and near rue Lebleu in Saint-Césaire. The use of machinery will make impossible the circulation on a portion of nearly 12 km. Users, cyclists or pedestrians, will have to plan this closure in planning their next outings. If all goes well, weather permitting, Sintra inc. plans to complete the work on June 23. Thus, the population will be able to benefit from a newly asphalted route as soon as the National Holiday of Quebec leaves.

Cycle, in-line skate or hike along La Route des Champs and its 40 kilometres of mostly straight paths;
an original way to explore the spectacular natural surroundings of our region. From Chambly to Granby, by way of Richelieu and up to St-Paul-d’Abbotsford, rural life offers visitors a showcase of vineyards, orchards and other points of interest.
The bike path will soon be 90% paved. The La Route des Champs map indicates which sections are asphalted or not and services offered along the way, such as rest areas with picnic tables, washrooms and water points. Interested in spending several days in the region? Plan a night at a campground, a small hotel or an inn. Several establishments are certified Bienvenue cyclistes (cyclists welcome). Hop on your bicycle, put on your in-line skates or hiking boots, and take to the fields in complete safety. The path is patrolled daily in summer and weekends during the spring and fall. Another great reason to unwind in Cœur de la Montérégie!
