The Fat-lac! (33km)

Defying the Lake during winter

Crossing Lac St-Jean propelled solely by human power is practically a myth. Knowing that it had already been tamed by swimmers, a group of Jeannois decided to conquer it on their bikes… As a result of this extraordinary adventure, a growing number of enthusiastic cyclists joined the original group. Together, they will create a true classic now enjoyed by adventurers from all over the world…

And, perhaps more importantly, these pioneers of “cycling on the lake” will have paved the way for a major metamorphosis: cycling across Lac St-Jean will now allow young people with cancer to also complete the crossing of an ordeal that sometimes seems insurmountable to them, that of the disease.

The Fat-Lac!, presented by Cycles Devinci, represents a unique opportunity: to ride a bike on the majestic Lac St-Jean, in the middle of winter, under the light of dawn. The Fat-Lac Adventure! begins on the municipal beach of St-Gédéon in the early morning. The participants then cover the distance on a groomed and marked Trail, with food and drinks stations, which will lead them to a grand finale at the Roberval Village sur glace.

Participants have a maximum of 5 hours to complete the Fat-Lac!

Each participant undertakes to raising funds for the On the Tip of the Toes Foundation, which helps young people with cancer to recover their well-being. In all, a maximum of 100 people will have the chance to take up this challenge on February 19.

Are you ready to brave the night, the cold, the lake?
