Day 1 - Vallée Bras-du-Nord

Saint-Raymond Area

Plan for a half a day of riding in the Saint-Raymond area. Start on the Roquemont trail, with a warm-up on Sabot de la Vierge and Jolie Jaëlle, before crossing towards the Montagne du Suisse to take on the Hulk Eggen or the Tablerone. Then return to Roquemont via the Coq Rond. If the mood strikes, add a technical descent on La Tourilli. Like jumps? Be sure to drop onto the Paquet Rocket.

Day 3 - Rest - Old Quebec

After two splendid days of riding, a little break is well-deserved. Head to Quebec City's historic district to visit places of interest like Dufferin Terrace, the Petit Champlain, rue Saint-Jean and the Old Port. Immerse yourself in the rich history of Old Quebec and the beauty of its architecture. If you have a car, consider a tour of Île d'Orléans or check out the Montmorency Falls. An exciting day of discovery awaits!

Day 4 - Sentiers du Moulin

Destination: Sentiers du Moulin. A big day of climbing and slightly more technical trails is in store. In the morning, explore the SDM area by riding Fabuleuse and QMG, then explore the Maelstrom mountain. Your afternoon will be devoted to the Crête du Lynx, Vortex, Slab City and Maelstrom trails. If you are more experienced and looking for technical challenges, try LB-Cycle and King Kong on the SDM side, and Wolverine, Magneto, Vélociraptor or Granitosaur on the Maelstrom mountain.

Day 5 - Empire 47

This day in flow state is sure to put a smile on your face. In the morning, ride the Shaman, Kamasutrail and Estra trails. In the afternoon, Belzébrute and Mirador. If you're looking for even more of a challenge, replace the Kamasutrail with Pad Religion in the morning and the Mirador with La Descente du Coude in the afternoon. Did you know that E47 boasts one of the largest pump tracks in the region? It's worth spending some time there.
