The idea behind all of this!

The purpose of this challenge is for cyclists to discover the Eastern Townships as they pedal along lesser-known yet magnificent roads. Those roads will also lead you to explore villages and meet local merchants who will be present, eager to encourage participants throughout the event. The Gravel Bikepacking 500 emerged in the spirit of mutual support.

What awaits you:

The course leads you along the most beautiful Eastern Township roads, 85% on dirt roads and gravel trails and 15% on paved country roads.

Checkpoints in unexpected and strikingly beautiful places

The 500 km challenge

A challenge that can be tackled alone or with a partner, in complete autonomy, with no assistance, on the Eastern Townships’ most beautiful roads.

Level of difficulty: the course’s level of difficulty can only be matched by its great beauty… and shall be directly related to the speed and intensity participants choose to adopt.

Some will aim to beat a personal record whereas others will take up to 6 days to complete this great two-wheel adventure.

In any event, our goal of creating a great challenge for athletes and sports enthusiasts that also provides the opportunity to discover our fabulous region, the Eastern Townships, and its inhabitants shall be reached.
