Nadia Rahamatali: Cyclodéfi is a one-week bike ride around Lac-Saint-Jean.

Marcel Tshibanda: First and foremost, it's a challenge...

Alain Uzarama: ...that span>gets us outside our comfort zones...

Marcel Tshibanda: ...and pushes us beyond our limits.

Ulrich Kamgang: The first day, we biked like crazy. We didn't stop.

Nadia Rahamatali: The second day it got a little more intense.

Alain Uzarama: It takes just about all you've got physically.

Nadia Rahamatali: My legs were so sore.

Cristelle Guérin: I looked at it as adventure therapy.

Nadia Rahamatali: Every day you bike through different towns.

Marcel Tshibanda: People really came together and were so nice.

Nadia Rahamatali: Everybody was so welcoming.

Cristelle Guérin: You walk away with so much self-confidence.

Alain Uzarama: It makes you want to improve yourself, push yourself further and try new things.

Cristelle Guérin: If you can bike 100 kilometres a day, you have what it takes to apply for a job and land it.

Marcel Tshibanda: I learned I'm capable of much more than I thought.
