Four-Day Quebec Excursion
Our Excursion trips pack four days of riding excitement into an extended weekend. These rides are suitable for all road-legal bikes, from dual purpose to touring, but they will be run at a spirited pace with daily distance in the 500 km range. You must feel comfortable riding this distance daily. We'll be taking adequate breaks for coffee/lunch/gas along the way as well as stops at points of interest. Each night, we'll be staying in motels/inns, and will make dinner reservations for the group. Relaxing over a good meal with new friends and recounting the day's experiences is a great way to end every day.
Our four-day excursion to Quebec has the advantage of riding to the Laurentides in Quebec from Canada Rides HQ. On this ride, you will get to experience some great roads in Ontario, both outbound and inbound. With no major highways included, the route is run exclusively on secondary paved roads. Traversing central and southeastern Ontario before jumping into La Belle Province, you'll experience a variety of scenery and roads as we wind along on our adventure. The price of the four-day Quebec excursion is $300/person, $400/2up.
All overnights will be in motels or at private locations, no camping.

Barrie to Mont Laurier
Heading east from Canada Rides HQ, we'll head into the Kawarthas, hitting some of the best roads in central Ontario: Highway 507, Old Buckhorn Road and Elephant Lake Road among others. Crossing into Quebec at Portage-Du-Fort, we'll take gorgeous secondary roads to Mont Laurier.
Killaloe to Barrie
Our final day still has some great riding in store as we head west through Bancroft and into the Kawarthas; we can even stop in Letterkenny if desired. After riding through more scenic areas, we'll arrive back at Canada Rides HQ where we'll say our farewells.
Mont Laurier to Mont Tremblant
We'll start the day heading south almost to the St. Lawrence before heading north again to the Mont Tremblant area. A large circle route though some amazing back roads will bring us back to Mont Tremblant for the night.
Mont Tremblant to Killaloe
Our last day in Quebec, we'll be taking a different route up to Mont Laurier, then head south through some winding roads to cross back into Ontario. More back-road riding will bring us to Killaloe, where we'll spend the night on the shores of Golden Lake.
