Road and Gravel Events 2024 (QC/Montréal)

In this post, I will share some cycling events I am interested in for this upcoming 2024 season around the greater Montréal region and neighboring provinces/state.

I am located near Montréal (QC, Canada). While the list is centered around Montréal, QC it contains road and gravel events from the neighboring regions: Ontario, Vermont, New York & New Hampshire.
