ENGLISH BELOW

Cette étape justifie possiblement, à elle seule, votre participation au QSE. La Neilson est un parfait mélange 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… en bordure de la rivière Neilson ponctuée de chutes et cascades. La Neilson : un des plus beaux sentiers de vélo de montagne sur la planète ? À vous de nous le dire ! Nous sommes convaincus que oui.
Il ne faut surtout pas oublier la Chute à Gilles, la montée chronométrée de l’Aurore et un « finish » sucré dans la Beurre d’érable. Miam !

This stage alone may justify your participation in the QSE. The Neilson is a perfect blend of everything you wish for in a mountain bike trail in a unique environment: wooden bridges, granite bridges and slabs, tight descents, technical climbs, berms and more … all along the Neilson River punctuated with waterfalls. The Neilson: One of the most beautiful mountain bike trails on the planet? It’s up to you to tell us! We sure think so. Do not underestimate the Chute à Gilles, the Aurore timed ascent and a finish in the Beurre d’érable! Sweet!
