The festival was designed to bring together biking enthusiasts from across Montréal and the province of Québec. It’s an opportunity for everyone to get together in a festive atmosphere to have fun, share and discover an experience.
Vélocité is inspired by the beauty of the Tour de France, a popular event which promotes biking on an international scale. Totally dedicated to biking and all its practices, the festival’s sole objective is to gather and enjoin the entire community of biking enthusiasts.
This event offers a wide range of free activities: an exhibitor's village, family outing, a demonstration of sports bikes, showings of documentaries, and much more.
Bikers can also sign up for and take part in a professional race sanctioned by the Fédération Québecoise des Sports Cyclistes, which will be held on Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve.
