"Route Blanche 2020" Expedition Preview

Photos by Samuel Lalande-Markon, Félix-Antoine Tremblay et Marco-Carlo Milo

From the tenth of February to the fourth of March, Samuel Lalande-Markon and Félix-Antoine Tremblay made the first bicycle crossing of the Route blanche, on the Lower North Shore of Quebec. The two cyclists traveled 500 miles (800 km) autonomously in the heart of the Quebec winter facing temperatures as low as -53°F (-47°C). More than a year of preparation proved necessary to face the unknown.

The full story of their adventure aboard the Panorama Cycles Torngat fatbikes will be published shortly. Until then, here are some pictures.

    *** If your size is currently 'out of stock' on our website, please contact your closest PANORAMA CYCLES  dealer to know what they have on hand. Next deliveries are planned for Spring 2022. Please subscribe to our newsletter to be the first informed of when the pre-sale will be launched. *** 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.

Photos not representative of final buildkit. *** Isolated in northern Quebec, located in the Arctic Cordillera, the Torngats Mountains are frequented only by those who have the real will to face the elements of nature. We do not get there by chance. It is a mythical place that imposes respect. An highly inspiring destination for the Torngat fatbike! We have included in this bike the features needed to make it completely versatile. Among other things, the frame is belt-drive compatible, it has an access for a dropper seatpost and is equipped with horizontal rear wheel dropouts. The Reynolds 725 high-grade steel tubing frame and the light, stiff carbon fiber fork accommodate the largest 26″ tires available, as well as the 27.5 x 4.5″. All you have to do is leave the house, get on the bike and explore the territory that is still unknown to you!

Strength and reliability are highlighted in the choice of components. The 36 spokes double walled with reinforced eyelets rims paired with 700x50mm tires and the Microshift transmission offering an immense speed range of 585% are perfect examples. The Reynolds 525 steel tubeset as well as the 4130 steel fork have been selected to maintain excellent stiffness once the bags and panniers are added. Features such as the addition of extra spokes mounts, integrated kickstand plate, multiple mounts for bottles, front and rear racks and fenders make this a true Swiss Army knife for on-the-go travel bike.
