Searching for Rédemption

It must be stated, and stressed, that although this route has been plotted and I feel as though it is a viable route, it has NOT YET been ridden and tested. There is a good chance that some of the route is plotted on ATV trails and will need corrections to be done before it is complete. If you decide to ride this route prior to this note being edited, I would love your feedback and any re-routing you were required to do. Much appreciated. Chris

Taking the rider through parts of both the Bas-Saint-Laurent and Gaspé Peninsula, this route will take you through the most mountainous part of the region, taking you through amazing valleys and over mountain passes, predominantly travelling along gravel roads.

One of the biggest challenges of taking on the routes I’ve created in the Gaspé Peninsula is that much of the route is off the beaten track and offer very little in terms of resupply or lodging. This means the rider will have to be complete self-reliant. In terms of safety it is very important you communicate clearly with your loved ones and let them know where you will be. Having a GPS tracker could also be very beneficial.

This route has been developed by  Chris Panasky, creator of the Bike Tour Adventures podcast.

The Searching for Rédemption route was created by the team at Bikepack Adventures. It’s sharing on this website is for informational purposes only.
