If you are looking for the best cycle tour in North America then this is it! It has it all.

It is challenging but not so much that an relatively inexperienced cyclist will quit. It was my friend Barbara's first tour. The scenery is just mind blowing.

It is easy to sag or do without support. The traffic is limited to 35mph and the shoulders are wide. There is great camping all along the way.

At either end there are great towns to unwind in. With bus service for an easy shuttle.

There are climbs and long rewarding downhills. There are mountains, rivers, glaciers, waterfalls, lakes and tons of wildlife.

So tune your bike and make plans.

Address: Banff Jasper Canada
