Déjà reconnue mondialement par les grands magazines de « mountain bike », la célèbre Neilson s’ouvre à vous. L’expérience culmine.  

Si vous n’avez pas encore roulé la Neilson et les autres sentiers du secteur Shannahan de la Vallée Bras-du-nord, cette étape justifie, à elle seule, votre participation au QSE. La Neilson est un mélange parfait de tout ce que vous espérez d’un sentier de vélo de montagne dans un environnement unique : ponts de bois, ponts et dalles de granite, descentes serrées, montées techniques, « berms » et plus encore… Tout ça, immédiatement en bordure de la rivière Neilson animée de multiples chutes et cascades. Un sentier génial à rouler et absolument fantastique pour vos yeux !

Le secteur Shannahan, c’est aussi la Chute à Gilles, la montée de l’Aurore, la descente de la Boréale, la Beurre d’érable, etc. Vous en reparlerez pendant des heures après l’étape, et probablement même toute votre vie.

If you have not yet ridden the Neilson trail and others from the Shannahan sector of the Valley, this stage alone is reason to make the trip to the QSE. The Neilson is a perfect blend of everything you could wish for from a mountain bike trail in a unique environment: wooden gangway, granite slab crossing, tight descent, technical climb, berms and so much more. All of this right on the shore of the Neilson river, with its spectacular waterfalls and cascades. Incredibly exciting to ride, and delight for the eyes! 

The Shanahan stage is also la “Chute à Gilles”, the climb of the “Aurore”, the “Boréale” descent, the sweet “Beurre d’érable”, etc. You will talk about it for hours after the ride, and most probably for the rest of your life.
