Snow Biking

Québec City is a winter capital, so it’s no surprise that biking in the snow is catching on fast on local trails. Special bikes with super wide wheels, known as “fatbikes", are the perfect ride for winter conditions, and a great way to stretch out the cycling season. It’s official: snow biking is on at Sentiers du Moulin, Mont-Sainte-Anne, Vallée Bras-du-Nord, Parc de la Jacques-Cartier and E47 ÉcoSentiers Villégiature. In downtown, it is possible to try it at Domaine Maizerets.
