The route is similar to the Gran Fondo 125 km but adds an substantial section of the legendary Nordet, a mountainous road linking Lac Supérieur and Saint-Donat. A favorite for the athletes amongst us; nothing compares! In the last section of the ride, be prepared for some challenging uphill stretches on an impeccably paved surface, followed by high-speed lengthy descents.

The Gran Fondo is a 125-km loop that is aimed at experienced cyclists who seek a personal challenge in a ride that brings them through the rolling landscapes of the Upper Laurentians. The cyclists will take Montée Ryan, then pedal past the picturesque settings of Brébeuf and St-Rémi d'Amherst, to continue along Rockway Valley’s Hwy 364, which boasts a superb riding surface. The loop crosses the villages of Huberdeau and Arundel before going through downtown St-Jovite. After crossing eight municipalities, cyclists will attack a section of the legendary Nordet, a mountainous road between Lac Supérieur and Saint-Donat. Riders end the journey on the sinuous and fast chemin Duplessis road, which connects the North and South sides of Mont Tremblant.
