** NOTE: Due to an indefinite bridge closure on chemin des Épinettes, we had to reroute traffic on this circuit. As a result, the online route differs slightly from what is indicated on the printed version of the 2019-2020 Cycling Map. The information related to elevation gain is also somewhat changed, although there is no significant difference in additional elevation on the new route.
