Gaspésie! Why should I go through these hundreds of kilometers to get to you? !!! There are these kinds of places we would rather have in our backyard , don’t you think?
Gaspésie is so beautiful with its rugged terrain, crystal-clear water and the beautiful Chic-Chocs mountains. This peninsula is without any doubts one of the most “fattable” places in the province of Quebec and there are so many opportunities to fatbike 12 months a year.
We planned this 2 days microadventure to explore the Baie-des-Chaleurs, more precisely the area where the Cascapedia flows into the bay. We decided to focus our expedition to explore the beaches and shores, which are easily accessible and are also an extraordinary place for a night under the stars.
Without being in very remote area, this expedition gave us the impression to ride for days without seeing anyone. This feeling of loneliness is so valuable, it is at the source of this deep connection with nature and with its elements that we establish during a bikepacking trip.

Any questions, please contact us.*** When you venture on the less traveled roads of the backcountry, sometimes, the beautiful road becomes much more bumpy than what was predicted. The asphalt becomes gravel, and the gravel literally becomes an off-road trail. It is for this kind of adventure that the Anticosti was created. The Anticosti bike is built with a bespoke selection of Reynolds 725 steel tubing, thinned where it is needed to reduce weight. A generous clearance allows you to install 27.5x2.1 or 700x50 tires with fenders. You will find all the necessary mounts to carry the equipment for a night in the tent, or for a more ambitious multi-day trip project. Do not let your current bike limit your desire to explore. Take the path you want with the Panorama Anticosti. Frameset: 1,699$ Complete Bike w/Rival buildkit and Hunt wheelset: 3,099$1,699$ – 3,099$ (CAD)

An industry first, the adventure composite laminate incorporates an advanced material, XANTU.LAYR ™, to make the Katahdin rock-solid. Learn more about this technology here.
