>> par Vélo Québec 
Montreal, Tuesday, February 28, 2012 – The Vélo Québec Voyages team will be at the Toronto International Bicycle Show, from March 2 to 4. Its members will be presenting an attractive program for Torontonians interested in two-wheel travel, since they now have access to flights from Toronto and VIA Rail Canada package tours from Toronto and Ottawa. As a novelty for 2012, the tent rental service now extends to the Petite Aventure Desjardins after its overwhelming success at the Grand Tour Desjardins 2011.

Interview Opportunity
Yolande Garant, Director of the Vélo Québec Voyages Travel Agency, will be on hand at the organization’s kiosk to meet with media representatives.

Flights from Toronto
Clients of the Vélo Québec Voyage Travel Agency now benefit from certain departures from Toronto. Ireland, Italian Lakes and Dolomites, Slovenia, Lombardy and Ticino, Greece and Cyclades, Tuscany and Majorca are more accessible than ever!

VIA Rail Canada Package Tours from Toronto and Ottawa
Torontonians are invited to participate in the Montreal Bike Fest, a week of urban cycling events, including its festive weekend featuring the popular Tour la Nuit and Tour de l’Île de Montréal. Package tours including accommodations and event participation are available with round-trip train transportation between Montreal and Toronto or Ottawa.

Participants in the Grand Tour Desjardins, an all-biking weekend which takes place this year in Gaspé Peninsula-Acadia, will be able to get to Matane - the start site of the event – by train.

Tent Rental Service
Whether on the Petite Aventure or the Grand Tour Desjardins, participants can now opt for a tent rental service, which includes pitching and dismantling, as well as delivery of baggage inside the tent.

Package tour up for grabs
Visitors to the Toronto International Bicycle Show are invited to come and dream at the Vélo Québec kiosk. A package tour for the Grand Tour Desjardins or the Montreal Bike Fest weekend, both including transportation with VIA Rail Canada, will be drawn at the organization’s kiosk.
