Le Grand Tronc bike path - Lotbinière Linear Park
Trans-Canada Trail Green Road # 1
Green Road # 1 between Dosquet and Saint-Redempteur

The Lotbinière linear park bike path, also known as Le Grand Tronc, is located in the Chaudière-Appalaches region and reroutes the towns of Dosquet and Saint-Rédempteur for a distance of 31.5 kilometers. It is a stretch of Green Road # 1 and the Trans Canada Trail. The bike path itself continues to the south in the region of Central Quebec and the Eastern Townships to Richmond, it is an important axis for cyclists traveling the Green Route # 1 between Montreal and Quebec .

The bike path is very linear and flat because it is built on the old railway line of the Grand Trunk Railway, it crosses an agricultural area and is often parallel to Route 116. It must be said that the route is quite monotonous and redundant landscapes. On the other hand a lot of effort has been invested in the layout of the track, its furniture, the stops in each city crossed, the signaling, the preservation of the old stations, the reception of the cyclists and more. The bike path is popular and popular with locals and cyclists.

It is a bike path in clean site with a rock dust coating until Dosquet (see map), then asphalted until Saint-Agapit, begins again dust to the limit of Saint-Nicolas. The last section near Lévis, in Saint-Nicolas and Saint-Rédempteur, is asphalt. Rock dust and asphalt are in good condition all the way and you can ride on a road bike with narrow tires.
