Bicycle Club - Furtifs

The Club is a not-for-profit organization that allows military, civilian and retired members of CFB Bagotville, as well as the families of these groups, to get together for road cycling. It is a recreational / cyclosportive club.

The Club's mission is primarily the physical conditioning of the members through road cycling. Thus, the promoters were able to establish several objectives. Cycling trips will allow club members to acquire or maintain good physical fitness, improve their ability to ride in a platoon, and simply learn about cycling in general. In addition, the voluntary participation of members in competitive events will also be possible under the representation of a club officially recognized by the Bagotville military base and the Fédération québécoise des sports cyclistes (FQSC).
