Les Veloroute des Bleuets ~ Lac St. Jean, Quebec 255.7 km after the Ironman 2013


After leaving Mont Temblant, we headed east to camp at and explore some of Quebec’s beautiful national parks ~ Ponte Taillon, Monts-Valin, and Fjord-du Saguenay. Following that we went to the Gaspe Peninsula and stayed at Perce Forillon National Park, Ile-Bonaventure-et-du Rocher-Perce, Miguasha and Bic.

We discovered at Pont Taillon you can only bike in with your camping gear, we knew using our tri-bikes was not an option. We rented one of their mountain bikes and Doug towed our camping gear 3k to our site.

A “bicycle built for two” has always been a something we’ve wanted to try out. One day we rented one of these to cycle the 40 km loop around the park. Turns out . . . . . I really don’t like to sit behind Doug and have him totally in control of where we go.

Before leaving this scenic peninsula, we felt we couldn’t leave without riding the Veloroute des Bleuets ~ a bike path around Lac Saint-Jean 255.7 km long. We stayed overnight in Normandin and Roberval, before returning to the park. The bike path was so amazing, traveling in and out of the little towns along the lake, through countless blue berry patches. We were so glad we did this ride, it was so beautiful!
