Montreal to Farnham QC by Dandy Horse – 167km

  What a great feeling to wake up, spend an hour preparing food and equipment and clothing and then slip out the door knowing you have all day to ride. The weather is warm again – it goes from -10 to +15 in less than a week and if you’re not sick you’re out riding. My route is open-ended today, so there’s no pressure, but I aim generally SE from Montreal, ticking off the miles on Route Verte 1. Can I sing the Route’s praises enough? It’s really amazing to have a trail system this comprehensive.

New! Now Offering custom bike tours in Quebec

 Spent this last very cold and gray week exploring and route checking in Quebec in advance of offering guided tours this year.  Montreal Escape – we meet at Atwater market and head southbound over the Jacques Cartier bridge, navigate the route verte 1 and arrive at the point of open road choices. There are lots of one day options or ½ day options depending on your skills level and time frame. Great thing about riding here are all the safe and well-marked trails available to use. Most of sidewalk
