  1. Hey Biker,
    I would really recommend you to do The Route verte.
    It is more than 50 miles, but you can do only 50 miles of it, if you want  

    National Geographic has ranked the Route verte first in the top 10 bike routes on the planet !
    It was chosen for their beauty, length and excitement.

    This Route verte crosses Qu?bec from north to south and east to west, lining up more than 4,000 kilometres of biking explorations! This immense bike trail is easy to follow, whether to escape for a few days or for a long trip.
    In this route you can cycle from Qu?bec City to the Saguenay Fjord, winding along estuaries, fjords, capes and beaches and passing through quaint villages. You can also visit and stay in several villages designated as the ?Most Beautiful Villages of Qu?bec.?  (If you wanna do more than 50 miles)

    Starting on the Route Verte (a bike path) You can cycle along on quiet country roads along the south shore of the St. Lawrence Estuary, inland to the rocky and wooded shoreline of Saguenay Fjord. You can also continue to Tadoussac, the oldest village in Canada and one of the best places to spot whales and playful seals!

    I also know about another bike routes in Montreal, But I am not sure how long they are, or if they are larger than 50 miles….
    But If you sum all the bike routes in Montreal, it has over 600 kms of bike paths, bike bands and designated bike lanes that ring the island and bisect it from north to south (Christophe Coloumbe-Berri). The most popular of these are the paths along the historic Lachine Canal and through the Old Port of Montreal. Other interesting rides can be found along the Canal l'Aquaduct and the south shore of Lasalle which passes the Lachine Rapids.     
    Also many of Montreal's nature parks have cycling paths including Cape St Jacques, Ile Bizard and Bois-de-Liesse. You can also take a ride through Mount Royal Park or as its refered to locally “The Mountain” which will reward you with some nice views of the city from the lookout.
    You can reach the south shore cycling paths from three seperate locations from Montreal, the Bridge from Nun's Island, the connection to Ilse St Helene or by taking the Jacques Cartier Bridge. You can also transport your bike in the last car of the cities subways (Metro) outside of rush hours. The Metro also provides a link to the south shore via Longeuil.

    Hope that helps,
    Does someone know any other good bike routes around?

        * King’s Road (this historical 18th-century road connects Quebec City and Montreal)
        * New France Route (connecting Quebec City and Cap-Tourmente, this 50-kilometre (30-mi.) route is a trip through time)
        * Whale Route (Manicouagan and Duplessis)
        * Navigators’ Route
        * Wine Route (Eastern Townships)

    This here is a man/woman who knows what they are talking about. There are definitely long-distance cycling routes in Quebec, but given the size of the province the some of the conditions you’ll be cycling in, you definitely want to know what you’re doing beforehand.
