Route

Family cycling in the city

Do you belong to an active family? How about parking the car and spending a day exploring the town by bike? This route takes you along the bike paths in Gatineau. First stop, the Canadian Children's Museum (located in the Canadian Museum of History), where young explorers can travel around the world through 30 display modules. Next on the list is Altitude Gym, an indoor climbing park located in a former church. Unleash your inner monkey in a fun and safe environment! Take a break at the Saint-Éloi Café Bistro overlooking Leamy Lake, and round out your day by relaxing on the Leamy Lake beach. If the kids still have energy to spare, they can go for a swim!
