Quebec Bikepacking Traverse

Go across Quebec through the less explored roads. Discover the forestry and maritime heritage of La Belle Province. Meet with the people that built that nation. Relish the protected landscape of our national parks. Test your abilities on a diverse itinerary. Participate a this project to put Bikepacking on Quebec’s map and attract bicycle travellers towards us.

As hands-down the longest bikepacking route in Canada, the Quebec Bikepacking Traverse is a route unlike any other. The Traverse starts in Rouyn-Noranta, a town in Northwest Quebec’s Abitibi-Témiscamingue region and ends 3000km later in Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula. 

This adventures will take you through every type of terrain imaginable, from gravel roads to rail trail, singletrack, mountain passes, and forestry roads; all while attempting to keep you as far away from paved roads as possible.

Traveller. Cyclist. Expat. Over 15 years experience living abroad in six different countries. I've travelled to over 40+ countries and met countless travellers, cyclists, and other expats. As a passionate cyclist I've had opportunities to bike tour in some truly amazing places. While definitely not an expert at bike touring, I'm passionate about sharing bike touring stories and helping others learn hacks, tricks, and techniques to improve their touring experience. I look forward to you joining me on this journey of learning about and becoming a better bike tourist.
