Summary

Meet and greet the tour guide and group at a bike shop in Old Québec City’s Lower Town district. After getting fitted for a bike and helmet, there is a brief safety orientation before beginning your ride around and through Lower Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Cruise along mostly bike-friendly, flat terrain during this relaxing bike ride. Pedal along the waterfront to the revitalized Old Port and nearby Musée de la Civilisation (Museum of Civilization), the most popular museum in Québec City. Then continue to Place-Royale, the first permanent French settlement in North America.  Far from the hustle of the large shopping centers is Quartier Petit Champlain, with its many stone building boutiques, cafés and restaurants along cobblestone streets. From there, quaint urban parks lead the way to the banks of the Saint-Charles River and the Cartier-Brébeuf National Historic Site, a beautiful city park on the river’s north shore.
