Bicycle

 

If you plan to do visit our region on a bicycle, here are a few information you might need to travel safely in our beautiful and scenic landscapes, the first thing to do would be to visit the Website of Vélo Québec and to look at the maps of the Route Verte (cycling roads of Québec): http://carto.routeverte.com

 

Travelling by bicycle on the road to Percé Rock is certainly spectacular and it comprises its share of challenges, especially if you decide to take the Route 132 between Coin-du-Banc and the village of Percé.  This part of the road is very sinuous, hilly, the sides of the road are narrow and the summer traffic can be dense. You must be careful.  Or you can take an easier (but longer) option via Route Lemieux as far as Anse-à-Beaufils and ride back towards Percé.  You could also decide to take Route d’Irlande (via Route Lemieux) this road is also hilly (uphill and downhill) and a little sinuous but with less traffic.

 

In the village of Percé, most of the activities and services are accessible within a walking distance from the center of the village.  No need for motorized vehicle.

 

If you need a «more specialized» repair shop for bicycle, the closest one is Sport Excellence in Grande-Rivière at (418) 385 2345 (33 km from Percé). Do not hesitate to come and see us at the Tourist Office (142 route 132) in the center of the village, we will do our best to help you.

 

If you plan to do part of your trip by bus transportation, here are a few tips: Orléans Express bus stops are located in Grande-Rivière (33 km from Percé) and in Gaspé (75 km from Percé). Shuttles are available to take you to Percé or from Percé in concordance with bus schedules. Please refer to our Interurban bus transportation section in our Transportation and travel section of the Website for all the details for shuttles and buses.
