Learn the ropes

Cycling on flat ground is so passé. At least, that’s what the brains behind VéloVolant must have thought. Their new flying bicycle just took flight at Au Diable Vert, an award-winning resort in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, 90 minutes south of Montreal. Connected to a high-performance cable strong enough to hold 10 tons or five cars and supported by sky-high maples and pines, the suspended bike (complete with seatbelt) reaches heights of up to 30 metres in the air and travels as fast as you can pedal along the one-kilometre route. It’s a first in Canada, but unlikely to be the last. The 45-minute circuit meanders along mountainsides, through ravines and over waterfalls with views that stretch to the Green Mountains of Vermont. Until November. Adults $50; kids $35. Participants must be at least 12 years old. To book: velovolant.com.
