A great respect for biking is present in Quebec. Only Montreal has more than 400 kms of bike paths and from here many "Voies Vertes" spread all over the Province. A good net of hotels, motels, B & Bs permit to bike easily as well as the presence of trains and buses. Biking here in autumn is special thanks to wonderful colors of trees and thousands and thousands of birds that flight over You during their migration to the South. The Gaspé peninsula worth is fame and here it is possible to find spectacular sections along the Chaleur Bay and the Matapedia Valley.
