I've just found out about the Route Verte and it looks great. . .online. Has anyone biked any parts of it, have anything to say about it? I've never been to Québec, though the region fascinates me. Planning a longish trip there this summer (3 weeks or a month-probably August), and was thinking about biking from Montréal to Gaspé. Is Lac St Jean and the Saguenay worth riding up?
I was also wondering about the costs of accommodations in Québec. I think I'd like to stay in hotels/inns about half the time, maybe all the time if it makes sense (certainly in the cities -- so if anyone knows Québec city. . .).
Oh, and beer. I'm a beer gourmand. I know of Unibroue, of course, but if there are any other quality breweries in Québec, I'd love to hear about it.
For the record, I speak/read (French) French pretty well.
