I have set aside a few days next week to go touring in Quebec -- planning to cycle for 3 or 4 of them. I have a lot of ideas about what to do and I'd love some advice. I'd like to see nice scenery while staying safe (I prefer lightly trafficked roads or dedicated bike paths).
Here are my ideas so far, but other suggestions would be appreciated!
* Route Verte #5 from Montreal to Quebec City along the North Shore, then take the train back. However I am concerned about the traffic along this route. What is it like?
* Route Verte #1 from Waterloo/Sherbrooke to Quebec City (then bus back to Sherbrooke). But I have two questions: first, is this route beautiful or boring (I've read both)?? Also, are the unpaved bike paths much slower than roads?
* Route Verte #1 from Quebec City to Riviere-du-Loup (bus back to Quebec City)
Thank you for your help!
