Circuit vélo 2018: A Wonderful Experience for Saint-Laurent Teens
8 août 2018
Saint-Laurent, August 8, 2018 – Like last year, nearly forty 12-17-year-olds participated in the Circuit vélo cycling tour on Wednesday, August 8, 2018, organized by the Saint-Laurent day camp program. This event took place between the Centre des loisirs and the visitors' centre at Île-de-la-Visitation nature park.
The starting signal was given by the Borough's elected officials. The cyclists were organized in a number of groups, with about 10 members in every group, and each one supervised by at least 2 adults, 1 at the front and 1 at the back. Each group left 3-minute intervals apart and the journey, almost entirely along bicycle paths, was scheduled to last about 5 hours. The activity was supervised by 1 coordinator and followed by the Urban Safety and Security Patrol as well as a truck specialized in bicycle repair and maintenance.
A wonderful experience to introduce these future adults to sports and group living and also to promote active transportation!
