Electric Fatbikes

 

 

We have 2 electric Fatbikes for rental at the lac-a-la-tortue Guesthouse!

The activity is accessible to everyone, especially older teenagers and adults who are thirsty for thrills! You don’t even need to be in good physical condition, because you can manage your effort by modulating the power of the electrical system. Come and try it out!

Where to practise it in Mauricie?

-Gentilly Sainte-Marie-de-Blandford River Park

Number of km offered: 17 km

This park, which is a paradise for mountain bikers, has transformed part of its summer trails for winter snowcycling. What an excellent idea that not only makes cycling enthusiasts happy, but will also interest families who like to move.

Mechanically worked, their forest trails are carefully maintained, very well typed, relatively narrow and dotted with valleys and curves. The 2 km family course (#21) is perfect for young children. They’ll love it! There are different routes (3 easy and 1 difficult). As for the difficult 4 km course (#22), it is intended for mountain bike experts as it includes several steep climbs and descents. “Big fun” and adrenaline for mountain bikers.

Schedule: In winter, the reception is open from Friday to Sunday, from 10 am to sunset. Heated community room for warming up or dinner (bring your lunch). Hot chocolate dispenser and toilet.

The Mauricie National Park

Shawinigan, Saint-Jean-des-Piles sector

Number of km offered 16 km

La Mauricie National Park offers an enchanting setting for cycling on snow. The activity is offered at the following locations:

  • On the access road and loops F and G of Rivière-à-la-Pêche campground; on trails number1 et 11 (10 km)
  • On the Promenade route between the Saint-Jean-des-Piles reception and interpretation centre and the Rivière-à-la-Pêche service pavilion (6 km). Access to the other trails of the winter network as well as off-piste skiing is prohibited.

To gently increase the level of difficulty and feel more in touch with nature, trail #11, accessible by first crossing part of the cross-country ski trails, allows you to ride in the forest on trails that are still very wide, but with more curves, climbs and descents. A charming cabin with a wood stove allows you to rest a little on the course.

The most skilled will have a lot of fun on track #1 around the campgrounds. Very narrow and dotted with many steep curves and fairly steep hills, it will appeal to mountain bikers. The less experienced can still go at their own pace, but will sometimes need to get off their bikes to get through some passages.

**In total, 3 bicycles are available and 2 aquaskippers

What is a water bike?
Tired of bike paths? Come and enjoy a brand new concept finally available in Quebec: the water bike! Synonymous with relaxation, pleasure and even fitness on the water, water bicycles allow you to enjoy the lakes and rivers, even when the water is cold!
How does it work?
The models differ, but the principle remains generally the same: a seat, pedals, a propulsion mechanism and guaranteed pleasure!
Who is it for?
Small families, youth, teenagers, adults, etc. And no need to be in exceptional physical shape, everyone can use them. It’s easy… like riding a bicycle!
In Lac-à-la-Tortue, we offer aquaskippers and 4 very stable water bikes, 2 of which offer electrical assistance* :

Hydrobike

The hydrobike is a very stable water bike, suitable for the whole family.

The Hydrobike is a premium quality water bike made in the United States and synonymous worldwide with safe family fun and fitness on the water. Hydrobikes Inc. is the original manufacturer of water bicycles, the leading innovator in water bike transmission technology and the leader in water bike sales since the founder invented the pedal Hydrobike in 1989.

 

Propeller-powered for the fastest performance

The Hydrobike is a real bike that rides on water. You ride like a bicycle. When you pedal, you turn a 12-inch long, high-efficiency underwater propeller.

 Each turn of the pedal rotates the propeller 9 times. Hydrobike is faster than canoes or kayaks. You can go forward or backward. You can ride in less than 12 inches of water without any problem and you can ride in 4-foot waves without tilting.

 

 Safe, stable and robust

The Hydrobike is remarkably safe, even for children. Proven safety for over 25 years, extreme stability, 400 lb. of flotation and unsinkable pontoons made of rigid material. More stable than a paddle board, kayak or canoe, Hydrobikes do not require balance, special skills or driving ability. Hydrobikes are so stable and stable that jumping from the Hydrobike bike to swim and get back on board is easy. Everyone, from children to the elderly, loves our Hydrobikes!

Peace and calm

This water bike is very quiet to use, which also makes it ideal for trolling and wildlife and aquatic observation. A subtle hum of the transmission is all you hear when you pedal. The Hydrobike’s silent movement and stealth also make it an excellent small fishing boat. Customized rod holders are available for mounting,

Whether you are a kayaker, pedal boat, canoeist, water bike or simply an outdoor enthusiast, you have the opportunity to choose. Be a pioneer with a Hydrobike!

Water biking with Hydrobikes is an innovative and environmentally friendly activity that is developing rapidly all over the world. They are not motorized, human-powered, they travel from 4 to 6 km / h, they are silent and do not disturb nature. Hydrostatic bikes are a concrete way to make a difference without making sacrifices. Make the hydrostatic bike and get closer to nature. Better yet, don’t leave any carbon behind!

Shuttle bike

Shuttle bike: The propulsion system starts with a pivoting roller/gear mechanism that attaches to the frame and adjusts to make contact with the rear wheel when the bike is used on the water. From there, power is transferred by means of a flexible transmission shaft to the gear/propeller/rudder assembly attached to the front wheel. The propeller/rudder allows you to steer with the handlebar – you can make a 360′ turn in place by turning the handlebar 90′ in either direction! Since the drive roller touches the rear wheel, the bike speeds can be used to obtain the best combinations of speed or cruise.

Price: 2500$+Tx without the bike
