      VENEZ DÉCOUVRIR CE NOUVEAU CENTRE DE VÉLO DE MONTAGNE ET FATBIKE

      NOUVEAUTÉ 2023 : Dans le cadre du développement de notre réseau, nous sommes heureux d’annoncer l’ouverture de 6 kilomètres de nouveaux sentiers dès maintenant, dont Mastodonte (flowtrail), Yessir Miller (descente), Carcajou (descente), Diable (descente), Auf Spring (boucle xc), le prolongement de Cimetière (montée) et plusieurs autres segments qui ont été ajoutés ou mis à niveau.
      Situé à seulement 60 minutes du Grand Montréal et 45 minutes de Gatineau-Ottawa, Montebello Vélo de Montagne propose un nouveau réseau de plus de 20 km de sentiers de vélo de montagne et fatbike à explorer pour tous les niveaux de cyclistes sur les terres seigneuriales historiques et majestueuses du patriote Louis-Joseph Papineau.

      Offrant des points de vue époustouflants et des éléments naturels uniques dans un décor enchanteur, cette activité accessible et abordable pour toute la famille est chapeautée par des passionnés de vélo de montagne natifs de cette petite municipalité touristique qui fut l’un des premiers endroits au Québec à développer ce sport dans les années 1980.

      Vous pourrez profiter, entre autres, d’une vue incroyable sur la rivière des Outaouais, d’un passage sous une grotte, d’une forêt magnifique composée d’immenses pins centenaires et d’un monolithe millénaire.
      Le pavillon d’accueil, le centre de location et le stationnement gratuit se trouvent au Fairmont Le Château Montebello, le plus grand bâtiment de bois rond au monde. Il est ainsi possible de séjourner à cet hôtel reconnu mondialement et de se lancer dans les sentiers à quelques mètres de sa chambre!

      EXPLOREZ DES SENTIERS MAJESTUEUX
      Montebello possède un riche historique pour le vélo de montagne depuis plus de 30 ans, ayant notamment accueilli le Championnat canadien de vélo de montagne en 1988, ainsi que plusieurs compétitions dans les années 1990 et 2000 dans ces « bijoux de sentiers » tels que les décrivait Vélo Mag à l’époque.

      Près de 15 ans après la disparition de ce réseau mythique, cette initiative vise à redonner à Montebello ses lettres de noblesse pour ce sport en revitalisant une partie des sentiers classiques et surtout en développant des segments plus modernes.

      Le nouveau réseau est en développement et propose actuellement plus de 20 km d’aventures pour tous les goûts : des sentiers accessibles aux débutants, des singletracks sinueux, des segments techniques longeant les caps de rochers et de longues boucles old school du réseau original. Les amateurs de fatbike peuvent également y pratiquer leur sport pendant la saison hivernale.

      GÉRÉ PAR DES CYCLISTES PASSIONNÉS
      Avec votre soutien et celui de notre équipe de bénévoles, de nos partenaires et des généreux propriétaires terriens, notre objectif est d’atteindre plus de 60 km de sentiers dans les prochaines années afin de devenir une destination majeure de vélo de montagne et fatbike au Québec.

      Outre le Château Montebello, plusieurs options d’hébergement pour tous les budgets s’offrent aux adeptes désirant profiter de leur visite pour séjourner à Montebello, incluant des motels, gîtes, chalets et terrains de camping. Les sentiers sont également accessibles à partir de la marina municipale et de la route verte.

      DISCOVER THIS NEW MOUNTAIN BIKE AND FATBIKE DESTINATION

      NEW 2023: As part of the development of our trail network, we’re excited to announce the opening of 6 kilometers of new trails starting now, featuring Mastodonte (flowtrail), Yessir Miller (downhill), Carcajou (downhill), Diable (downhill), Auf Spring (xc loop), the expansion of Cimetière (uphill) and several other segments that were added or improved.
      Located only 60 minutes from the Greater Montreal area and 45 minutes from Ottawa-Gatineau, Montebello Mountain Bike offers a new 20-kilometer network of mountain bike and fatbike trails to be explored by cyclists of all calibers on the historic and majestic land of 1800’s patriot Louis-Joseph Papineau.

      Featuring breathtaking panoramas and unique natural elements, this accessible and affordable activity for the entire family is overseen by passionate local mountain bikers from the small tourist town of Montebello – one of the first areas to develop the sport in Quebec in the 1980’s.

      Your journey will lead you to an incredible view of the Ottawa River, a passage through a grotto, a magnificent forest of massive century-old pine trees and a millennial monolith.

      Our welcome center, bike rental facility and free parking lot are located at the prestigious Fairmont Le Château Montebello, the largest log cabin ever built. Guests staying at this world-class hotel built in 1930 can hit the trails barely a few meters away from their room!

      EXPLORE MAJESTIC TRAILS
      Montebello boasts a 30-year history for the sport as it hosted the Canadian Mountain Biking Championship in 1988, as well as several other races in the 1990’s and 2000’s in trails described as ‘incredible gems’ by Velo Mag at the time.

      Nearly 15 years after the disappearance of this legendary network, our goal is to bring back the mountain bike glory days of Montebello by reviving some of the classic trails and mostly by creating new modern trails.

      The new center is in development and currently offers over 20 km of adventures for all types of cyclists: trails accessible to beginners, narrow singletracks, technical loops on rocky ridges and long old-school loops from the original network. Winter lovers can trade in their mountain bikes for fatbikes during the cold season.

      CURATED BY PASSIONATE MOUNTAIN BIKERS
      With your help and support – along with our team of volunteers, partners and generous landowners – our goal is to reach over 60 km of trails in the next few years to become a major mountain bike and fatbike destination in Eastern Canada.

      Aside from Château Montebello, many lodging options are available for all budgets including motels, B&B, cottages and campgrounds. The trails can also be accessed from the marina and the Green Route.
