Gradually, new businesses are opening their doors, offering experience and know-how. Seasoned entrepreneurs or young enthusiasts – often helped by their parents – are the next generation to add to the mix and to our enjoyment.

The Vélo-Gare: bike rentals, repairs, activities and more

After several years spent running his chalet concierge business, Patrick Bohémier came to a realization: “Once you get here, then what?”

He and his team have settled facing the Parc des Voyageurs, which he describes with great passion as “the major point of departure and arrival in Québec for cycling enthusiasts.” From there, it’s easy to head off on roads, bike paths and mountains trails.

In addition to repairs, tuning and adjustments, the shop offers rental of cruiser bikes for young and old, retro-style tandem bikes and bikes with electric assistance. There are also fat bikes and soon, electric scooters that will allow the rider to make a return trip to Val-David in a day.

As operations director Vincent Barbe-Dubuc notes, “By adding services like a secure garage rented by the hour or by the season, meal baskets, guided outings and a bicycle shuttle, you end up with a full tourism product.”

Open year-round, Vélo-Gare is waiting for the snow before launching the fat bikes. 860 rue Coupal – 819 430-7521 tremblantbooking.com/velo-gare
