5 Destinations to discover by bike this summer

June is undoubtedly one of the favorite times of the year for cyclists. Mild temperatures are setting in and the roads are full of mileage-hungry pedalers. We jump into our shorts, put on our most stylish jersey and set off to explore the roads of our magnificent province. For a successful vacation, the Cycle Néron team brings you a small grouping of the best places to discover on two wheels for the summer of 2022.


#1 - La Mauricie National Park

If you love wide shoulders and want to test your legs in a loop with a drop that allows you to do so, La Mauricie National Park is the place for you.

A 125 kilometer loop with a drop of more than 2100 meters will take you past breathtaking landscapes to enjoy the great outdoors as you know how to do so well.


#2 - Mont-Tremblant (starting from the village of Mont-Tremblant)

La Mauricie National Park seemed to suit you perfectly, but a 125km loop is a bit too much for the outings you like to do; you will find your account at Mont-Tremblant.

Offering several loops between 50 and 90 kilometers and a drop between 500 and 900 meters, Mont-Tremblant is a destination to discover for intermediate level cyclists who want to break the routine.

For those for whom this would not be enough, you will also be able to complete the Ironman loop by following the instructions on site.

#3 - Ascent of Mont-Mégantic

Then comes one of the most difficult destinations in our topo, the ascent of Mont-Mégantic. For lovers of long climbs or simply to test one of the most difficult climbs in Quebec, Mont-Mégantic is a destination of choice for seasoned cyclists in the province.

A fierce climb with a magical observatory that allows us to observe our magnificent Eastern Townships. All in a pleasant loop of 73 kilometers which makes us discover more the assets of our roads.

Legend has it that we should stop for a good meal at the Auberge au Soleil levant, where a terrace with a view of the lake awaits us to end the day well.

#4 - Pointe-Taillon National Park

You have come so far in your reading and are still looking for destinations for the whole family, you will be served. Parc national de la Pointe-Taillon includes more than 45 kilometers of bike paths along Lac Saint-Jean and the Péribonka River. A circuit with few elevation changes, Pointe-Taillon is versatile for young children.

An activity that will make you travel through the beauty of the nature that surrounds it and where the whole family will find something to enjoy.

#5 - The Tomifobia trail of Ayer's Cliff

Is Lac Saint-Jean too far for a day outing with the family? That's why Ayer's Cliff's Tomifobia Trail makes this list.

A few minutes from Magog, these 19 kilometers of trails are accessible to everyone and are just as magnificent as they are varied. Maintained by volunteers and supported by donations, access to these quality trails is free. A destination without a doubt to discover.
