About La Grande Traversée
Thirty days, six provinces and more than 2000 km of cycling, La Grande Traversée is all that, but it is also a youth event to celebrate the importance of having a healthy lifestyle and the opportunity to provide an example through actions rather than words.
Born in 2013, LGT is a cycling relay that allows a few hundred teenagers from across Canada to achieve personal challenges, to develop their physical and mental perseverance, their leadership skills and to become great role models in their community. With the participation of high profile athletes and public figures all along, cyclists deliver their message by presenting the challenge to othe students with unique school’s conferences.
In 2017, in recognition of accomplishments since 2013, Laurent Brisebois and Emilie Bureau from La Grande Traversee (LGT) receive the Meritorious Service Medal of the Governor General of Canada, by Her Excellency the Right Honorable Julie Payette.Read more
