- Route Verte
The "Route Verte" (in English, the "Green Route," or the "Greenway") is a network of bicycling and multiuse
trails and designated roads, lanes, and surfaces, spanning 3924 kilometres(approximately 2437 miles) as of October 31, 2007, in the Canadian province of Quebec, inaugurated on August 10of the same year. The trail network includes both urban trails (for example, in and around the city of Montreal) and cycling routes into quite isolated areas in the north, as well as along both sides of the Saint Lawrence River, out to the Gaspésie region, and on the "Îles de la Madeleine", linking more than 320 municipalities along the way. The "Route Verte" is not entirely composed of trails, as nearly 61% of the network actually consists of on-road surfaces , whether regular roads with little traffic, wide shoulders, special lanes on motorways, or otherwise.
