Metropolitan Challenge - Sunday, May 26, 2019

 Start/finish: Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines

Kick-starting the Go Bike Montréal Festival and the bike touring season, this popular Challenge takes place north of the metropolitan region this year, in Laurentian and Lanaudois territory. It follows part of the Achigan River, which derives its name from the Algonquin Indian word meaning the one that fights, inspiring you to give your best as you pedal through Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines, L’Épiphanie, Saint-Roch-de-l’Achigan and Saint-Lin-Laurentides.
