The Petite Aventure Desjardins 2019

La Petite Aventure Desjardins

Real life!

Real life! Now that’s an expression you will hear regularly as of June 29. It perfectly sums up the joy of capturing the first days of summer, when the sun likes to linger in the sky, being on vacation and forgetting the daily routine, biking at a relaxed pace with family and friends along quiet roads, and benefitting from outstanding supervision and maximum freedom during your three days of cycling. This year, the Petite Aventure Desjardins offers you this enjoyable experience in the beautiful Centre-du-Québec region, which extends from the south shore of the St. Lawrence to the foothills of the Appalachians. On this bucolic route, you will spend two nights in Victoriaville - Québec’s ultimate eco-friendly city, where economy and ecology ride in tandem. Bet you have a smile on your face! Real life starts here!

Reserve by April 29 and get a free pass to the Tour de l'Île de Montréal.
