Mont Megantic - Tour de Beauce

The climb up Mont Megantic in Parc Megantic is incredible. It's one of the biggest climbs in the east. Are you going there this year?

Some quotes about Beauce and Mont Megantic cycling:

"On Wednesday the riders face the longest stage of 180 kilometers, with three rated climbs, followed on Thursday by the feared Mont Megantic stage, which finishes at over 1100 meters, with an average gradient of over 12 percent for the last 5 kilometers." click here to read article
