The women’s mountain bike camp, Les Poules qui Roulent, took place from June 8 to 10, 2018. The camp was designed for women who want to discover mountain biking and those who want to improve and learn new riding techniques. Supervised by 15 instructors and coaches, the workshops offered the girls the opportunity to surpass themselves. They ventured out into the Mont-Tremblant trail network where they took the time to develop the techniques and skills that allowed them to conquer different passages more easily or to simply try sections that they would not have tried otherwise.

Based at the Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant, the camp had everything to offer the girls a VIP weekend. About 50 participants took advantage of the 2-day package, of which 20 slept on location. 30 girls chose the Sunday only 1-day pass.

The weekend kicked off in the Grand Lodge barn with a projection of 2 mountain bike films under the adventure travel theme: Red Bull Media House’s North of Nightfall, which takes place in the Arctic with spectacular scenery and refers to climate change and Kilimanjaro, Mountain of greatness, the adventure of 3 mountain biking legends who climb Mount Kenya and Kilimanjaro. The evening was a perfect way to start the camp, but also bring together a community of bike enthusiasts.

It was truly a worry-free weekend … Everything was included: meals (including lunch boxes, dinner and snacks recommended by nutritionist Ariane Lavigne), natural energy drinks, mechanical services (even in the trails), lunch delivery in the trails to maximize outing time, first aid services and a yoga session in collaboration with Lolë Tremblant.

Workshop groups were formed based on the experience and skills of each participant. Each group was assigned trails in advance to prevent all the girls from being in the same place. The instructors were great at adapting their courses according to the girls’ levels and what they wanted to learn. Amazing energy and camaraderie was felt in each of the groups. The girls were motivated and had fun, all the while pushing themselves to improve.

We thank Station Mont-Tremblant, Cybercycle and Quilicot who loaned bikes to girls who were introduced to mountain biking for the first time.

“I went on a mountain bike for the first time Saturday morning. My only motivation was my 8 year old son who has been riding for 2 years. I finished this weekend camp with adrenaline in my veins, smiling and grateful for the great coaches who gave me the tools and confidence to continue mountain biking safely. Thanks to Vélo Mont-tremblant for sharing your passion. – Pascale Lanthier, participant

A big thank you to our many partners without whom we could not have accomplished so much: City of Mont-Tremblant, Tremblant, Quillicot Bicycles, Cybercycle, Rouge Marketing, Trees Mountain Apparel, The Grand Lodge, O’Cafe, L’Âme du Sport, MEC , Dakine, Emoson and Naak.

Vélo Mont-Tremblant is extremely happy to have welcomed 219 children during the Take a Kid Mountain Biking event presented by L&P taking place on a sunny Sunday, June 3, 2018. Now in its eighth edition, the day’s activities went off smoothly and were created for children of all ages and their parents. The objectives were to introduce youth to the basics of mountain biking, increase comfort on the trails, improve technical skill and inspire them to be active while having fun in a safe environment. For this edition, five new stages were added in the “Émi” equilibrium learning zone located in the Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant pine forest.


The morning’s agenda was geared towards children aged 2 to 7 with a ‘self-serve’ formula allowing families to arrive at their leisure. After collecting participation plates and exclusive Vélo Mont-Tremblant caps offered by L&P Apparel, parents accompanied their children on the trails. Nine different workshops were offered along a loop that ran through the “Émi” area and the Labyrinth trail. At each stop, the children were led by enthusiastic instructors who made sure to explain each part of the game. The stages focused on developing foundational skills such as bike control, braking, position change, etc. Challenges included a slalom of suspended pool noodles, climbing and descending, counting pedals while rolling, etc. Children received a sticker for each challenge that they could collect on their bike plates.


For lunch, all participants, parents, volunteers, etc. got together for a great picnic at the Grand Lodge barn.


In the afternoon, it was the turn of 8 to 16 years to get rolling. 75 youth accompanied by 10 certified instructors and 7 chaperons explored various trails adapted to their level of expertise. In addition, new this year, twenty parents gathered for an outing accompanied by ambassadors.


Activities were accessible to all. A huge thank you to Station Mont Tremblant, Cybercycle and Bicycle Quillicot, who organized free rental bikes for a dozen children in attendance.


“We had a great family day with the Vélo Mont-Tremblant team, with activities that spoke to toddlers and parents alike. A great organization, a welcoming atmorsphere and smooth running workshops and lunch. The workshops were motivating and very well thought out. The instructors were passionate, with lots of smiles and high-fives! My boy does not want to take off his new bike cap, what a beautiful memory! See you next year! ” – Jessica Bérard, 3 year-old Axell’s mom.

Spring has been late to arrive but the fatbike season is coming to an end. The snow on the trails has melted considerably and no longer allows us to ensure the proper grooming of trails. However, as the cold seems to want to stick around a few more days and because the north facing trails are still very beautiful, we will keep some of them open.


As we cannot guarantee a good surface to ride on, you no longer need to purchase an access pass to the trails. You can continue to use the trails, but it is important to note that the conditions may be less than desirable and dirt, rocks and roots may be exposed in some places.


Some trails are also closed for the season. We ask you to respect this in order to reduce the impact on the environment. Also note that only fatbikes are allowed on trails (tires over 3.5″ and over).


See our conditions page for more information.
