Read about our ambassador Steven experience at the Paris to Ancaster Race in Ontario this summer. This event was the second Steven participated in this summer under the Cycling Avenue colours.

Having spent every summer of my childhood in the Bas-St-Laurent, this region has become my secret paradise for road biking but also for gravel biking! I have explored almost every corner imaginable, especially in the area of Trois-Pistoles, where my second home is located!

Read our Ambassador's Steven experience at it is first ever gravel race. Steven raced at Gravel Cup Ottawa. You will be able to read about is race prep, is race day and more!

In case you haven’t heard of this route, I’m here to help you understand the reality of the trip. Do not be fooled by the ‘butter tart’ name and think it’s all about sweet treats and easy riding. The BT 700 is a serious adventure and not for the faint of heart.

Crowsnest Pass is located southwest of Calgary on the border between Alberta and British Columbia. Last fall we discovered this somewhat unloved mining region of the Rocky Mountains. It's windy, chilly, even a little hostile and wild. But we loved the scenery so much that we decided to go back this year.

Big Red Gravel Run is a race almost entirely on private gravel roads and country lanes. This makes the event attractive because these roads are normally inaccessible and fenced off. This 130-kilometre race with 1,750 metres of positive elevation gain is an event not to be missed.

For my first bike packing experience, I opted to sleep in a hostel. I would like to do some self-sufficient trips soon, but this time it was simpler and more comfortable but also reassuring - especially since I was missing too much equipment for camping.

I must admit that I had to do a quick Google search to find this village located in Chaudière-Appalaches. It looks magical! Maybe we'll even find some hobbits!

Do we not seek to continually grow and improve in everything we do with our lives? Pushing our limits and getting out of our comfort zone gives us an immense sense of accomplishment that easily becomes addictive.

The Aerobic Corridor is a multi-purpose trail (biking, running, walking and cross-country skiing in the winter) that spans 58 km between Morin-Heights and Amherst. The Aerobic Corridor used to be a railroad, but in the early 1960s the railroad was discontinued, and in 1996 the corridor was finally created.

November 2020, while we were confined for several months, Alex and I were invited to participate to Huairasinchi, an adventure race in Ecuador, a word which means "The force of the wind" in Quichua. This race, which has been part of the World Series since 2003, is known for its brutal climbs, dense jungle and long stages at altitude.

Let's be honest, I was puzzled by his asymmetrical look myself. I didn't understand the purpose of the suspension until I did my research. And more importantly, before I tested it!
