Cyclo-Tour Michel-Gauthier: new free Express formula!
On Sunday June 3, 2018, at 10 a.m.
This spring, we invite both young and old to shine up their bikes and get ready for the Express version of the Cyclo-Tour on Sunday, June 3, 2018 leaving Parc Bédard at 10 a.m. Our objective: enable the greatest number of people to take a break and get some exercise in—without interfering with their plans for the rest of the day! This new formula is also free for all participants. Note, however, that the “walk and run” option is not available. The Bryan Liew race is slated to be held in September 2018.

In 2017, as part of Saint-Lazare’s policy relating to toponymic designation and odonyms, the Cyclo-Tour was named in honour of the late Michel Gauthier, Saint-Lazare resident, founder of the Cyclo-Tour in 1994, and outstanding volunteer for over 10 years. Appreciated by all, Mr. Gauthier shared his boundless passion for sport, writing and teaching. In 1993, his desire to create a unique and rallying family-focused sporting event became a reality with the Cyclo-Tour, which is now an annual not-to-be-missed event for the Saint-Lazare community.
Thank you to our sponsors!

Naming of Cyclo-Tour + in memory of Michel Gauthier
On Sunday, June 4, 2017, the Mayor of Saint-Lazare, Robert Grimaudo, accompanied by members of the municipal council as well as members and close friends of the Gauthier family, unveiled a plaque commemorating Mr. Michel Gauthier, Founder of the Saint-Lazare Cyclo-Tour and officially designating the Cyclo-Tour + in Michel Gauthier’s name.
“It has been 3 years since Mr. Michel Gauthier passed away. Today, in 2017, our hope is that he stays in our hearts and our town, and that his memory is honoured here, in Bédard Park—a central location for recreational activity, and one to which Mr. Gauthier contributed tremendously,” stated Mr. Robert Grimaudo, Mayor of Saint-Lazare.
Founder of the Cyclo-Tour in 1994, resident of Saint-Lazare and outstanding volunteer, Michel Gauthier spent over 10 years actively involved with volunteer work. Appreciated by all, he shared his boundless passion for sport, writing and teaching. In 1993, his desire to create a unique and rallying family-focused sporting event became a reality with the Cyclo-Tour, which has now become an annual not-to-be-missed event for the Saint-Lazare community.
