Join the Louis Garneau International Cycling Club and ride along with us in the most beautiful cycling places of the world

The Louis Garneau International Cycling Club is a global community of passionate and dynamic cyclists who organise and participate in cycling events all over the world. It is a friendly bunch of people.

Louis Garneau’s Special Cycling Events have now become a wonderful tradition. This year again we want to celebrate our sport by inviting cycling friends and athletes from all over the world to ride along together in some of the most beautiful parts of the world.

Louis Garneau International Cycling Club

Short history of the Club

The Louis Garneau International Cycling Club was created in 2012 by Louis Garneau himself as an incentive for cyclists in Quebec to get together and explore the region on their bikes as a group. From the original 50 members who joined the first season, the Club now counts triple that today, and the number keeps increasing.

Led by our international ambassadors, the Club organises exclusive tailor-made cycling adventures with a focus on regional cuisine and culture. It’s a great opportunity for like-minded cyclists to meet their idols and ride along with them in the most beautiful and panoramic landscapes.

In our opinion, there is no better place to launch the Louis Garneau International Cycling Club than our first event, the Girona Special Cycling Event in Catalonia, Spain on May 7, 2022, with our long-time Canadian ambassador Mike Woods.

2022 International Club Events

VIP Quebec

Every week in the summer the Club organizes rides leaving from the Garneau headquarters in St-Augustin–de-Desmaures. All International Club members are welcome to ride along. By joining one of our international rides, you automatically get invited to the other events and are eligible to exclusive privileges and advantages. Get VIP access on special events, promotions and early information release. We like to keep people connected and well informed.

Members of the Club meet at least once a week and often ride in the beautiful region of Portneuf, not far from Quebec City, where landscapes are as amazing as the ride itself.

Louis joins the Club as often as his schedule allows him to. More than 35 years after he hung up his competitive bib, he is still as passionate about cycling as he was when he started out in 1983. He never misses an opportunity to get back on the road with the group.

The Louis Garneau International Cycling Club is affiliated with the Fédération québécoise des sports cyclistes (FQSC).
