What happens if I don't collect my full fundraising amount?

Cyclists agree to donate the total amount raised to the Charles-Bruneau Foundation. If you're worried about raising the full amount, you can refer to your toolbox for fundraising ideas. For more information, tips and encouragement, contact your trek coordinator.

How does the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau work?

Several treks are available, depending on the number of kilometers you wish to cover and the region from which you wish to depart. All routes have a registration fee and a fundraising requirement. The amount of the registration and fundraising fees varies from trek to trek. When you register, you'll have access to a toolbox to help you with your fundraising.

Each participant must register individually, but you can create or join a team. Each team member is responsible for raising the fundraising amount. To form a team, you need at least 2 participants, and there is no maximum number.

For first-time participants or cyclists under 40, a promotion is offered. This promotion reduces the fundraising amount by 30% for treks of 100 km or more. This promotion is valid for all cyclists who are new to the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau or under 40 years of age at the time of registration.

Depending on the trek you choose, you can see what's included in the registration fee. For all treks, you'll receive a cycling jersey bearing the Tour's logo, a water bottle, socks, meals, drinks, snacks, insurance in case of injury, supervision on the road and the services of bike mechanics.

I made a donation, but I didn't get my tax receipt.

Tax receipts are sent automatically by e-mail a few minutes after receipt of the donation. Since this is an automatic e-mail, it may end up in your spam folder or your e-mail service may block receipt. Please write to fondation@charlesbruneau.qc.ca to request a receipt.

How can I pay the bill that appears on my account?

It is not possible to pay an invoice from the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau website. It is possible to do so via these options:

Online payment (credit card only): dons.charlesbruneau.qc.ca/en/paiement-de-facture

Payment by cheque: Cheque payable to the Fondation Charles-Bruneau, with the invoice number written on the cheque, sent to: 4515 rue de Rouen, Montréal, Québec, H1V 1H1

Can I get a tax receipt for my registration fees?

Unfortunately, registration fees are not considered a donation. These fees are used to cover the cost of equipment, hotel accommodation, meals, snacks and insurance for the duration of the event, depending on the route chosen.

Can my child under 16 participate?

Young people aged 13 to 15 can take part in the Discovery Trail only, accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. Both the teenager and the adult must register, and both must commit to achieving the fundraising goal. A waiver must be completed to confirm the teen's participation. The decision will be made by the Fédération québécoise des sports cyclistes (FQSC).

Are gravel bicycles accepted?

They may be accepted, depending on the trek chosen. Please have your request validated by the Charles-Bruneau Foundation team.

What is the average speed of the peloton?

It all depends on the trek chosen; each route contains several pelotons going at different speeds.

Is there a registration fee for the 12H de vélo?

Registration is free for all cyclists registered for the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau. For accompanying riders who are not registered, a donation in exchange for kiosk access is recommended.

When will I receive my equipment?

The equipment will be shipped around mid-June. Communications will be sent to participants in advance to confirm their delivery address and give them further details about receiving the equipment.

As one of the first people to register for the Tour, I'm eligible for the promotional item. When will I receive it?

How do I know which peloton I'll be in?

Are bikes secured at night? Do I need to bring a lock?

There's no need to bring a lock, as bikes will be placed in a secure location and locked overnight.
