A bit tight for time?
You can leave for one day or a few days. The shuttle can drop you off at various bicycle starting points that the reservation team will suggest.
You are asking yourself “what about my car, where will I leave it?”
Most shuttle departures take place at Place de la Gare in St-Jérôme (km 0), where you can leave your car, during your stay, in a designated parking lot, equipped with security cameras.
With commuter train departures from Laval or Montreal, you can also reach St-Jérôme while carrying your bike. The train station is located next to the Autobus du Petit Train du Nord reception wagon.

You don’t own a bike, or your bike has a bit too much mileage?
No problem; adults and children alike can rent a bicycle as well as ebikes (electric bicycles).
