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

Our country route is now paved on nearly 90% of the path, the rest being made of stone dust.

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)

Take to the fields in complete safety

The path is patrolled daily in summer and weekends during the spring and fall by bicycle patrollers from the Sûreté du Québec (SQ). Another great reason to unwind in Cœur de la Montérégie!
