The Metropolitan Challenge, Sunday, May 24, 2015
Every year, during the Go Bike Montréal Festival, the Metropolitan Challenge kicks off the season in style. The 3,000 participants in this recreational cycling event, which features neither stopwatch nor podium, are happy to join other avid cyclists and push their limits, while benefitting from outstanding supervision. This year’s route begins in Châteauguay and takes you through Saint-Urbain-Premier, Howick and Ormstown. On your mark, get set, go!
Metropolitan, Lanaudière-Mauricie, Eastern Townships
Three Friendly Challenges!
Organize your day as you please: choose your route — 75, 100, 125 or 150 km —, start between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m., bike at your own pace and have lunch at the rest stop or finish site. Benefit from Vélo Québec’s expertise both before the event — excursion handbook, suggested routes, topographic profiles and GPX data – and during — route signage, on-road supervision, water refill stations and relief vehicles if you’re unable to finish the course. Talk about great value!
