Lac Saint Jean Tour – September 2010
This was our second bicycle tour and the first time with our own gear. Beyond figuring out the logistics of getting to the starting point, a tour of Lac Saint Jean’s Véloroute des Bleuets (Blueberry bike path) is a great place for beginner tourers to get their feet wet. Most of the route is on pathways, there is a lot of accommodations along the way so you don’t need to camp, plus during the high season there are ‘ambassadors’ along the route who will help you if needed. As we went at the beginning of September, this was considered off season so some of the great facilities were not available to us, however for this same reason we had the path to ourselves most of the time, and were able to explore the campground on the lake and other areas more than we may otherwise have been able to.
