Whether on the handlebars of a vintage electric bike, pedaling on rails or aboard a flying bike, visit corners of Quebec in a different way!
It was during a trip to Mexico that Jeremy Fontana and Julie Zeitlinger, owners of Au Diable Vert in Glen Sutton, in the Eastern Townships, first flew by bike, an activity they would later offer in a optimized version in their outdoor base. For six months, eight workers installed a cable that could support more than 10 tons at the top of the trees, so that the adventurers could pedal for more than 1 km (45 minutes), well seated and attached to the inclined seat of a bicycle. flying.
"A quiet experience, but with chills", describes Mr. Fontana.
Suspended 100 feet in the air on the mountainside, the cyclist enjoys an exceptional view of the forest, its ravines, its waterfalls, its animals, then on the Green Mountains of Vermont. The unique activity in Canada is offered to people aged 12 and over who must be 56 in (1.42 m) tall.

The Vélorails de Beaulac-Garthby guide cyclists along Lake Aylmer in the Chaudière-Appalaches region, in the sun or in the rain. Composed of a platform attached to two bicycles, this small vehicle activated by the muscular strength of the drivers (two minimum) circulates on the railway tracks, weaving through different environments that awaken the senses. A bench even allows children to be part of the adventure. After a few explanations, in particular to learn how to turn the vehicle, the ride begins from Parc Bellerive. After a journey of 10 or 18 km along Lake Aylmer, woods, fields and marshes, travelers return with the memory of a unique experience in Quebec and images in their heads.
