Berthierville, QC

Saturday 22 June 2024

The historic village of Berthierville offers a nice waterfront and 4 pleasant cycling routes through rich farming country. Several routes pass through the covered bridge Pont Grandchamp. Two shorter routes are fairly flat (49 and 58 km with climbs of 172 m and 233 m respectively), both with a lunch stop in Sainte-Élisabeth. The slightly longer 73 km route is moderately hilly (346 m of climb), with a lunch stop in either Sainte-Élisabeth or Saint-Félix-de-Valois. The 77 km route (563 m climb) provides a scenic and hilly ride that is mostly uphill until lunch at Saint-Félix-de-Valois, and mostly downhill thereafter. Stop at a pleasant waterfront pub at the end of the day. Cyclists from the South Shore may want to leave their car at the Sorel ferry terminal, take the ferry with their bikes and cycle to the starting point (5.6 km one way).
