Eric Leonard, Quebec Volunteer Regional Coordinator

When the ADSVMQ (Quebec’s trail advocacy organization) was formed, Eric quickly got involved. He later co-authored the "Guide d'Aménagement des Sentiers de Vélo de Montagne," a book based on IMBA’s Trail Solutions and Managing Mountain Biking. As an active transportation planner, Eric works to help grow cycling and walking opportunities in many municipalities around the province. His vision of cycling doesn't focus to simply one type of user: Eric says he sees the opportunity for cycling to grow as a whole whenever two wheels and human power are involved! When he's not riding bikes, Eric can be found in mountains where the snow is deep. + Follow Eric's Blog
