Cycling: The Magog Loop
Starting at the confluence of the Magog and St. Francis Rivers, the Magog Loop offers cyclists a range of activities. In the heart of the city of Sherbrooke, bikers follow the Magog River to Parc Jacques Cartier or Parc Lucien-Blanchard. The whole family can take a break for a picnic, play volleyball or swim at Lucien-Blanchard Beach. A gourmet stop at the Marché de la Gare is a must. The gelato and ice cream are particularly popular with both children and adults.
