Credit card touring along rivers in Quebec
Over the years I have done several memorable tours in Québec, and am considering returning this summer.
Most of my previous trips have involved rivers -- primarily the St. Lawrence, but also the Chaudière. Has anybody travelled by bicycle along, say, the St. Maurice River (north of Trois-Rivières) or the Saguenay (north from Tadoussac or Saint-Siméon)?
1. Which routes are suitable for credit card touring? I don't carry camping equipment, and count on staying at motels or B&Bs that I find along the way.
2. Which routes have you found particularly beautiful?
3. Which roads should be avoided? I try to stay away from heavy traffic, especially trucks, and most especially logging trucks!
