If the bike ride to Percé is absolutely beautiful, it also has its challenges. Caution is therefore always required. In some places, especially if you take route 132 between Coin-du-Banc and the village of Percé, the roadside is sometimes narrow, the road can be winding and the turns very tight. There can also be heavy traffic during the summer season. It is however possible to avoid this sector by taking the route Lemieux to L’Anse-à-Beaufils and to return to the village of Percé by road 132. Another option would be to take the route de l’Irlande (via the route Lemieux). Although this road is also winding and without a large roadside, it is much less busy.
In the village of Percé, most of the activities and services are accessible on foot, so it is easy to get around without a motorized vehicle.
If you need assistance (specialized repair), the nearest sports store to Percé is Sport Excellence at Grande-Rivière, 33 km from Percé: 418-385-2345.
Don’t hesitate to drop by the tourist information office at 142 route 132 west, in the heart of the village of Percé. We will do our absolute best to assist you!
