Route des Voyageurs

This historic section follows in the footsteps of Canada’s Voyageurs, early fur traders who used canoe routes to travel from Montreal to Sault Ste Marie and then on to points further west. The riders will head east, skirting the shores of Lake Huron before arriving for rest day in Sudbury, home to the Big Nickel. The city is famous for its minerals – nickel, copper and others – remnants of a nearly two billion-year-old impact crater, likely the result of a meteorite collision. It is also known for its Inco Superstack, the second tallest freestanding chimney in the world at 380 m.

The cyclists will continue east through North Bay before following the Ottawa River, one of the Voyageurs’ most favoured routes, to Ottawa and another rest day. The country’s capital and home to Canada’s Parliament buildings, Ottawa will give the riders an excellent opportunity to understand the nation’s history, given the large number of museums and art galleries. Another couple of days cycling along the river will bring the riders into the province of Quebec and Montreal, one of the world’s largest French-speaking cities outside of France.
