The Vélocité Festival

CGV, Parc Jean-Drapeau, Montréal

The purpose of Le-Sportif.comis to respond to the needs of every outdoor sports event organizers since 2003.
Le-Sportif.com is present in Canada since 2017 in the bicycle area more specifically. Le-Sportif.ca has formed close links with all the major players of the bicycle area. So came the idea to gather the numerous cycle sport lovers in a common event : theVélocité festival. The choice of the place happened naturally. Located 5 minutes from Montreal downtown, the uniqueParc Jean – Drapeau is the ideal place for this festival. This festival is for every cyclists, wether they are amateurs or elites, professional bikers or Sunday bikers, young or old, disciples of classic biking or BMX…
Le-Sportif.ca wish to demonstrate that cycling includes a lot of faces and uses thanks to this federative event. If cycling can be a daily mean of travel, it can be used as a mount for most distant trips. Or it can also be a source of family fun or in duo/solo. In the same time, cycling can be practiced as an amateur or professional and even in an artistic way.
The audience could attend several shows and participate in various activities. There will one for everyone’s taste. This may be a good opportunity for some of you to make their first push on the pedal. The Gilles Villeneuve circuit will be closed for the occasion. So join us to bike on one of the best asphalt in Canada !
