GO for it at the Metropolitan Challenge on May 29!
Kicking off the bike touring season, the Metropolitan Challenge is an opportunity to meet up with other cyclists, either for a good workout or just the pleasure of biking. This year’s edition unfolds in the orchard-filled region of this corner of the greater metropolitan area, where quiet, softly undulating roads take you first along the Ottawa River, and then through picturesque farmland toward Mirabel. This lovely panorama just outside Montreal provides the setting for a most tempting cycling experience. Ready for the challenge?
