Le P’tit Train du Nord Linear Park and here.

A tourist and recreational trail designed along an old railroad between Bois-des-Filion and Mont-Laurier, this 230 km (143 mi) corridor provides a north-south crossing through the magnificent Laurentian region. Summer activities include cycling, hiking, and inline skating; winter activities include snowmobiling between Labelle and Mont-Laurier (93 km/58 mi), and cross-country skiing between Saint-Jérôme and Val-David (40 km/25 mi, classic and ski skating); mechanical maintenance and easy level. All along the trail, railway stations have been renovated and many have been converted into welcoming cafés and rental and repair shops for sports equipment.

And it’s true, cycling can extend your life: Tour de France Cyclists Live Longer
