IMG_4602Kona Quebec rep Marc Prinzivalli reports: Since September 22nd up to today, Norte Dame de Mont Carmel, a tiny village a few miles north of Trois Rivières, QC is home of the first Kona Quebec Show Room 2015. This big house is the perfect set up to invite all Quebec dealers to come see the line up, take some bikes for a ride, share lots of laugh and a few beers!

Monday started with a “casual” ride with most staff from your local bike shops around the province, all hitting the trails under rain with a big smile and wet shoes ! Gilles Morneau, trail builder at St Raymond/Vallée Bras du Nord was guiding the 30 riders through his trails, Chute a Gilles (yep that’s his trail) and the now famous “Nelson”. Those trails are just plain gorgeous, taking us through waterfalls, north shore style bridges, perfectly shaped burms, and other fun features that makes those trails epic. Needless to say, everyone had an awesome time!

It was now time to head back to the house for a dip in the hot tub, some local “blé d’Inde” (corn) and meat on the BBQ and to hang out in the middle of the 2015 line up.

The house offers such a unique set up, we could display bikes in a more creative way! Yes the house even has a disco room!

Look closely… you will see the guys working at your local bike shop!

A window and a bed… had to set up the 2015 CinderCone like in the good old Red Light District!

After a long evening, it was time to turn the lights off and call it a night.
