Mégantic En liberté (gravel bike)

Mégantic in gravel mode

On a quest for freedom and wide-open spaces, far removed from paved arteries? The Mégantic region offers you an unforgettable experience combining the fun of gravel biking and new adventures. Along the different crossroads, your strenuous pedalling will be rewarded by breathtaking landscapes dominated by the Appalachians Mountains and refreshing breaks in the heart of nature or at the Baie-des-Sables beach. And you’ll be on cloud nine after visiting the Observatoire du Mont-Mégantic and discovering the outstanding panoramas that this unique scientific attraction has to offer.
