2016 Events – Velo MSM Mountain Fest

We are a participant in this not a sponsor but we wanted to talk about it because what started as a local event has become eastern Canada’s largest mountain bike festival. There are demos and displays by local dealers, activities for the whole family and some trail running too. A great opportunity to check out the trail network at Mont St Marie and a fun party weekend. The 2017 Velo MSN Mountain Fest will be held July 21-23. You can find more information  here
