The Larose Forest is a precious resource located on unceded Algonquin territory. We at The Mana Centre respect that and work hard to encourage respectful interactions with the Forest to offset our own carbon footprint. We're actively working on reducing plastic use - we have a bike-cleaner refill station and all of our cups are compostable in our centre. We're also involved in local climate action and are on the Larose Forest board for sustainable tourism.
By organizing various eco-social initiatives, like bike co-repair and maintenance projects, promoting outdoor ethics and setting up various eco-social programs, we show our appreciation of nature daily. Have a suggestion on how we can be even better? We'd love to hear from you!

Quality bikes at a reasonable price and exceptional customer service. We immediately notice that JS does this for the love of sport. If you want to introduce your family to mountain biking this is the perfect place to visit. Thanks again!
the mana centre
If you ask The Mana Centre, connecting with nature should not be a "maybe", it should absolutely be a "must"! With daily struggles and the stress life keeps throwing in our faces, spending time in nature is often the thing we're missing out on. People often underestimate the impact fresh air and beautiful scenery have on them. Don't be one of those people!
Stop procrastinating - come and enjoy the beautiful Larose forest and start with the stress detox your boss passed on to you.
Along with providing high-quality sports equipment for rent (mountain bikes, fat bikes, and snowshoes), our services also include organizing and hosting corporate activities, school outings, and outdoor intervention programs.
Not only do we rent bikes, but we fix them too! Whether it's a tune-up you need or just regular maintenance - we can take care of your bike or teach you how to do the same!
Connecting With Nature Has Never Been Easier
Located in the beautiful Larose Forest, The Mana Centre offers mountain and fat bikes for rent, as well as various activities, such as team-building activities, mountain bike instructions, guiding and coaching, outdoor therapy and more.
