Sainte-Flavie: A Little Village with Big Ambitions
Sainte-Flavie is the gateway to the Gaspésie — one that we pass through too quickly. This coastal village deserves a stop long enough for us to be inspired by its citizens who nourish the region’s vitality, resilience, and beauty.
Riding the Moment
Chas Christiansen is a charismatic artist, entrepreneur, and bike racer with an instinctive style and outlook on the world—all this from his years working as a bike messenger in San Francisco. From street racing to jungle excursions, he’s become a true ambassador of fixed gear cycling as a simple yet empowering way of life. And to this day, he still embraces every moment with wits, authenticity, and pure adrenaline.
