Félix-Antoine Tremblay is passionate about cycling and adventure, both in his personal and professional life. When he is not working as a bike infrastructure designer, he is on his bike exploring remote corners of Quebec and Canada.
It was during his adolescence that Félix-Antoine discovered bike camping at a summer camp in the Portneuf region. At the age of 19, he embarked on his first journey from Vancouver to Calgary with two other cyclists. However, a high-speed fall quickly ended the project as he suffered a severe traumatic brain injury.
Undeterred, he hit the road again from Vancouver the following year and completed the journey without incident. He repeated the experience in the three subsequent summers, visiting places like Colorado, where he tackled the ascent of the highest continuous and discontinuous paved roads in North America.
He then turned his attention to major North American gravel roads, specifically the Dalton, Dempster, Trans-Taiga, and Trans-Labrador Highways. From 2016 to 2018, alongside his studies, he spent the equivalent of a year on the road, covering these four routes.
In the winter of 2020, he and Samuel completed the first bike crossing of the Route blanche. In 2021, they connected the Manic-5 power station and Lac-Saint-Jean through the forest, including the crossing of the Outardes-4 reservoir with a packraft.
After spending a few years in the province of Quebec, he once again focuses on the northwest of the continent, planning to traverse the Canol Heritage Trail en route to Tuktoyaktuk.
Throughout his adventures, he ensures to document his experiences, sharing them on various platforms to enhance the accessibility of information in French regarding adventure cycling and its destinations.
