The Grand Défi Pierre-Lavoie will go through Pointe-Claire on Sunday morning

Morris Trudeau, mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, is pleased to point out that the cyclists participating in the Défi Pierre-Lavoie will be going through Pointe-Claire late Sunday morning.

“This is one of the stages in the 1,000-km route of the Grand Défi Pierre-Lavoie, which will be reached in our town with a pit stop at Edgewater Park. I invite everyone who wants to encourage the cyclists who are signed up for a prize to encourage them on their way through,” stated mayor Trudeau.

The group of cyclists will go down Du Bord-du-Lac-Lakeshore Road on Sunday, June 19, between 10 a.m. and noon. There will be no road closure. The Noël-Legault centre will be open for using the bathrooms.

The route starts at La Baie in Saguenay on Thursday, June 16, and ends at the Olympic Stadium in Montréal on June 19.

The Grand Défi Pierre-Lavoie raised nearly $3 million last year to promote healthy lifestyles among young people and support hereditary orphan disease research, through the scholarships and grants program of the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie Foundation and through the school sponsorship program by the 1,000-km teams
