AT MONT SUTTON ON AUGUST 15 AND 29: CHAIRLIFT, MOUNTAIN BIKE DEMOS, GOOD FOOD AND MUSIC
SUTTON, August 10, 2020 – On Saturday August 15 and 29, mountain bike happenings will take place at Mont SUTTON with mountain bike demos, chairlift in operation, music and good food!
Mont SUTTON and Plein air Sutton/MTB are not launching a downhill bike offer. Cross-country and enduro style trails are the essence of their magnificent trail network. The idea of offering lift rides is to allow cyclists to save their effort and thus be able to enjoy the trails for longer periods of time.
CHAIRLIFT IN OPERATION
It will be a first for mountain biking at Mont SUTTON since the main chairlift will be in operation on these two days. Cyclists, as well as pedestrians, will be able to buy lift ride tickets to get to the summit (alt. 680 m), either a single ascent for cyclists or a round trip for pedestrians.
It should be noted that this offer is for advanced cyclists only for the moment, since the two trails starting from the summit are difficult. However, the opening of a new intermediate level trail in this area will be announced soon.

MOUNTAIN BIKE DEMOS
Mountain bike demos will also be offered free of charge on these days, of course a bike trail access ticket is required unless the participant is a Plein air Sutton/MTB pass holder.

MUSIC AND GOOD FOOD
The outdoor restaurant at the foot of the trails will be open from 11 a.m. and will serve ribs and BBQ chicken for the occasion, in addition to the regular menu offering poke bowls, salads and poutines among other things. There will be something for every palate!
What’s more, starting at 2:30 p.m., singer-songwriter Sule, whom many discovered through the popular show La Voix, will be at the foot of the hill to offer a folk and blues musical ambiance.
A TEAM OF ENTHUSIASTS AND A GROWING NETWORK
It is to be remembered that the mountain bike trail network is developed and managed by Plein air Sutton/MTB, a non-profit organization, which has at heart to offer a unique and quality network! This is why it is important to pay trail access fees in order to allow not only the maintenance of existing trails, but also the development of the network for everyone’s enjoyment.
Finally, COVID preventive measures have been put in place at the mountain, in addition to additional measures specifically for the bike happenings to welcome the participants safely.
It’s a rendezvous for mountain bike enthusiasts!
