Take a break during your ride to visit a museum or tourist attraction, see about an activity or reenergize at a Village Café or at a restaurant headed by a Creative Chef.

The Cycling Map that Has Everything You Need

Cyclotourism in the Eastern Townships

The Eastern Townships’ cycling map has recently undergone a makeover with the help of Vélo Québec. This map includes the top six circuits in the region and indicates the length, level of difficulty, type of surface, steepness, whether it’s a road or bike path, the quality of the asphalt and more. It also points out the cities, locations, services and tourist attractions along the way as well as accommodations that are members of the Bienvenue cyclistes! program. The map is available online and at tourism information offices and is distributed by members of Tourism Eastern Townships.

A Hassle-free Getaway

Cyclists who are too busy to plan every detail of their vacation can easily find a package deal that includes accommodation, tourist attractions, activities and meals. If by the end of the day you’re too tired to ride back, or simply don’t feel like taking the same route, Taxi-Vélo-Rando is a service that picks you up and drops you off where you want, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Hop on your bike and enjoy the ride!
