Cycling

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 is now 90% paved
