The ABC of bicycle touring - Vélo Québec Voyages

A training course to introduce you to bicycle travel

Cycle touring is an extraordinary way to discover our planet. This mode of travel on a human level allows you to appreciate the particularities of each kilometer, to savor each moment spent on the road, by making the journey the main attraction of the stay. Moreover, it is an ecological way to travel to our different destinations, allowing you to manage your own travel, your efforts, and your itinerary according to your desires and the shape of the moment.
