New name for a festival on the move
This year, to better reflect the popularity of biking and the mobilizing role of its unique North American festival, Vélo Québec is renaming the Montréal Bike Fest the Go Bike Montréal Festival.
For Joëlle Sévigny, Executive Director of Vélo Québec Événements, “This timely name change, which coincides with the 30th edition of the Tour de l’Île de Montréal, is a logical continuation of the novelties introduced in 2013 to satisfy today’s cyclists. These novelties include free admission to the Tour de l’Île and Tour la Nuit for kids 12 and under — a concrete way of encouraging them to be physically active — as well as a wider variety of experiences at the Tour de l’Île, for both leisure and sporting cyclists.
At the Go Bike Montréal Festival, cyclists take to the streets and actually become the event. Dynamic, festive and motivating, the new name Go Bike Montréal Festival is a rallying cry for action and celebration, where the focus is on the joys of biking.
