Our top 3 bikepacking routes

Here is a selection of the best bikepacking routes in Quebec to try this summer!

At Panorama Cycles, we love designing bikes, but our true passion is taking them into the backcountry for a great bikepacking weekend!

With the help of ambassadors and collaborators, we have developed a collection of bikepacking routes in Quebec and the surrounding areas, ranging from simple overnighters to true expeditions.

Here are three must-try local routes! Share your adventures by tagging us on social media and using #panoramacycles #backcountrycycling.
