Gran Fondo Mont Tremblant

Gran Fondo Mont Tremblant

May 28 2016
Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada

Gran Fondo Mont-Tremblant will appeal to those looking to ride for fun, for good health and to take on a personal challenge, all while enjoying the beautiful scenery of the course in a safe environment. The region of Mont-Tremblant has phenomenal and compelling features that make it ideal for road cycling. Significant road investments in recent years combined with the scenery and the challenge of the Laurentians, now make Mont-Tremblant a major destination for recreational cycling.

This cyclosportive invites cycling enthusiasts to discover the Mont-Tremblant region on an unparalleled road course, choosing a personal challenge of 160 km, 125 km, 80 km or 45 km (100-77-50-27 Miles). This event will be held on Saturday morning, May 28th 2016. A fun activity filled weekend for cycling fanatics!

The panoramic views of the area, winding roads and the quality of the road surface will certainly make Gran Fondo Mont-Tremblant one of the most popular events of the season for road cyclists!

Our goal is to ensure a safe experience that will appeal to all levels of cyclists. Participants will be divided into different groups according to their skill level and average speed of the ride. The organization will provide support for each of the pelotons with motorized vehicles, police escorts and partial road closure.

The head pelotons of the 160 km and the 125 km distances will be reserved for experienced advanced cyclists as the speed will be unlimited and adjusted to the group. All other pelotons must conform to the established speed that will be satisfactory for the majority of cyclists in order to ensure a friendly safe experience, in the image of a group ride outing.

The GFMT is a gathering for all cyclists who want to meet in a festive environment to share their passion for cycling.
