Explore the Granby region by bike

Cycling destination par excellence, the Granby region offers nearly 97 km of safe, smooth bike paths as part of the Estriade network. You’ll have your pick of three signature circuits in the region. Admire artwork along the 54-km Artria Cultural Loop, explore the beauty of nature on the 40-km Parc national de la Yamaska Nature Loop, and finally, take a leisurely bike ride with your family along the 10-km Lac Boivin Family Loop. Need help along the way? More than 60 local businesses bear the Fièrement Vélo! logo and are always ready to help you. After exploring the region, don’t forget to visit newly renovated downtown Granby, accessible from the bike paths.

Grab your paddles and take to the water

The Granby region boasts three magnificent bodies of water where you can enjoy a variety of activities. Nestled in the heart of Parc national de la Yamaska, the Réservoir Choinière is a large basin surrounded by protected forests where visitors can swim at the supervised beach and even rent a watercraft. Next, get ready to explore the city and lake by kayak, paddleboard or canoe at Lac Boivin, steps away from downtown Granby and accessible from the bike paths. Last but not least, rent a watercraft or try water biking or paddleboard yoga at Lac Waterloo, where the banks are dotted with forests, marshes and homes.
