As a tribute to the great European cycling events enthusiastically attended by thousands of cyclists, the Mont Sainte-Anne Gran Fondo is inspired by the origins of such activities as well as the energy which is part of such gatherings to offer the ultimate experience to cyclists of all levels in Quebec, Canada and from abroad. Join us on June 22 and 23 to participate in this celebration of physical activity and health through cycling.
Anyone can participate in this event! Three routes are available, one with six timed sections, panoramic views, perfectly paved roads, hundreds of cyclists, lots of energy and fun. That’s what’s in store for you at the Mont Sainte-Anne Gran Fondo.
Join in with your friends, family and/or with a group to discover the magnificent Côte-de-Beaupré region at your speed. Rise up to the challenge of the timed sections! Using an electronic chip which will calculate your total time, winners will be determined in each category, based on their best times. Once you finish the climb, continue the event at your own speed.
Do you need energy while participating? Six stops are provided along the course where you can take a breather and chat with friends and other cyclists. Energy snacks will be available free of charge. Continue along your way and challenge the persons you’re cycling with along to the next stage. Have fun and take the opportunity to chat with locals and taste regional farm products.
