QUEBEC SINGLETRACK EXPERIENCE SMART TRAINERS
LIVING THE DREAM
The opportunity to compete in a seven-day mountain-bike event that includes World Cup singletrack while staying in a world-class city is something normally reserved for European events. However, the Quebec Singletrack Experience [QSE] has created exactly that in an adventure that combines the variety of a multi-stage event with the simplicity of an all-inclusive vacation. When I got the call from Pedal, I was on Cloud Nine and stoked to head east and “live the dream.” After registration and orientation, the Quebec Singletrack Experience 2017 began with a police-escorted night ride through the streets of Old Quebec. The people of the City of Quebec welcomed us with cheers from the cafes and restaurants as we rode to the Chateau Frontenac to pose for a photo. Later, we made our way to the Citadelle du Quebec, where we had a spectacular view of the city and the St. Lawrence River. The City of Quebec was absolutely stunning for this first-timer, and knowing that we had the luxury of staying in this world-class city while we spent our days riding the local trails remains an astounding adventure to me.
