Ever been to Europe to talk to people who love riding bicycles? If so, you’ll know that one of the first things they will mention about Canada is their dream of riding Quebec’s Route Verte.
Quebec’s 5300-kilometre province-wide network of bikeways is the envy of the rest of Canada and a remarkably lucrative tourist draw supporting all kinds of industries. La Route Verte also acts as the spine for bicycle networks in countless small towns across the province.
But La Route Verte is under threat due to shifting provincial priorities on maintenance. If you have ever ridden parts of La Route Verte, or hope to someday, we encourage you to learn more about VeloQuebec’s #sosrouteverte campaign and sign the petition here.
