Gaspé Point Loop
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
The Gaspé Point Loop is a 435km long loop with a lofty 6320m of elevation gain. Of the four routes in the Gaspé Peninsula, this route has the largest amount of paved road riding, as you follow the Gulf of St. Laurence and discover the beauty that is the Gaspesie. Spending your days cycling through small villages that make their living off the sea, you will delve into local culture and customs.
Leaving the coast, you head inland on gravel roads as you cut across the peninsula. Prepare for some tough climbing, as the vast majority of the routes elevation gain will be found in just 170km of the route. It’s also important to prepare adequately before this inland section of the loop, as there are few places where you can resupply.
