The circuit shown below corresponds to the purple circuit and displays distances of 40, 60, 80 and 100 kilometers. It will get you through some municipalities of the region on Lanaudière’s bike routes. Beautiful scenery awaits at every turn, from farmlands to mountainous areas. For a longer excursion, cyclists can prolong their route, reaching up to 100 km.

The proposed tours have been developed to the best of our knowledge. They are made up of bicycle paths separated from the traffic lanes or sections on the road according to their type. The choice of roads has been made to minimize exposure to motorized traffic. These sections do not necessarily have paved shoulders or signs for cyclists. We are not responsible for the condition of the roadway or the roads under construction. We rely on the cooperation of cyclists to respect the signs in place and ensure their safety. If you have any suggestions for bike tours, please send an email to

The four circuits are well maintained and marked, encouraging right turns for your safety. They are therefore one-way paths: make sure you follow the direction of the arrows to benefit from the signposts.
