Sept-îles and îles du Bic – Cycle Trip 2016

August 2016 – Trip Dates: July 28-August15

VIA rail train from Ottawa to Rimouski now includes a baggage car. This allowed us to do this trip on the tandem.

From Rimouski August 1 – Aboard the Supply Ship: La BellaDégaignés


For a realtime position see:

August 2 Arrive Sept-Iles

August 3-4 Day Trips around on on Grandes Basques – Sept-Iles

We soon discovered that highway 138 was the only road for all traffic, and the ‘accottement’ was scarce.


Street view Hwy 138 towards Godbout

For this reason, Trip revision: cancel trip down to Godbout, and venture only as far as Port Cartier for a couple of days and returned to catch the supply ship back on Sunday.

August 5 – Departure Port Cartier

August 10 – Trip to L’hopital Mont-Joli


Returning to Rimouski Area for our final destination – Bic
