Travelling by bicycle on the road to Percé Rock is certainly spectacular and it comprises its share of challenges, especially if you decide to take the Route 132 between Coin-du-Banc and the village of Percé. This part of the road is very sinuous, hilly, the sides of the road are narrow and the summer traffic can be dense. You must be careful. Or you can take an easier (but longer) option via Route Lemieux as far as Anse-à-Beaufils and ride back towards Percé. You could also decide to take Route d’Irlande (via Route Lemieux) this road is also hilly (uphill and downhill) and a little sinuous but with less traffic.
