3 places to ride your electric bike in Gatineau

Champlain Lookout

Riding up to the picturesque Champlain Lookout in the Gatineau Park is a great escape from the city’s urban environment. It’s no small climb — this pathway is often even used by cyclists for training purposes or to reach fitness goals. Taking an e-bike through the Gatineau Hills (often called “The Gats”) you’ll get a stunning view of the Ottawa River and Ottawa Valley. The Voyageurs Pathway runs alongside the Ottawa River and is the best way to ride your electric bike to the top of Champlain Lookout.

Voyageurs Pathway

If you’re new to the area, Gatineau and Ottawa are crisscrossed by bike paths that provide a spectacular natural escape from the city. The Voyageurs Pathway features incredible views of the Ottawa River for the majority of the ride for cyclists, pedestrians, and electric bikes alike. This pathway stretches for 30 km along the north shore of the Ottawa River and marks the first route taken many years ago by First Nations people, explorers, coureurs des bois and Jesuit missionaries in the region. It also winds through the city of Ottawa giving riders views of Parliament Hill and the Canadian Museum of History. The trail is open all year but is best used between March and October.
