Oh, Canada!

98 Days Moderate

Participants will begin their Canadian cycling adventure in the archipelago of Haida Gwaii, often referred to as the ‘Galapagos of the North’. The route then follows the mighty Skeena River giving riders the opportunity to visit First Nations communities and continues into the heart of the Rocky Mountains along the breathtaking Icefields Parkway through to beautiful Banff and then down into Calgary, home of the world famous stampede. The cyclists will then turn east into the rising sun, beginning their journey across Canada’s vast prairie landscape -golden fields of wheat and canola, striking grain elevators, rolling hills, hidden creeks and shimmering lakes all under the endless mid-summer sun.

The expedition quickly crosses into the province of Ontario and the spectacular Lake of the Woods region, an area of endless islands, lakes, river, forests and abundant wildlife. This is quickly followed by a spectacular ride along the north shore of Lake Superior – an endless vista of colourful granite outcroppings, framed by windswept pine trees and wild waves crashing against exposed rocks and deserted beaches. The route continues to Manitoulin Island before heading down the stunning Bruce Peninsula to Toronto. The riders then spin through Prince Edward County, Canada’s newest and most exciting wine region, the picturesque university town of Kingston, Ottawa, the country’s capital and Montreal, the world’s second largest French-speaking city after Paris, renown for its joie-de-vivre and incredible culinary scene. Quiet cycling trails then lead the riders on a car-free journey to Quebec City, the heart of French culture in North America.

Following the mighty St Lawrence River the riders will be exposed to the unique rural Quebecois culture. The remote coast along the Gaspé Peninsula is rugged and wild but the hospitality and home cooking of the region’s small villages will make the cyclists feel at home. The route allows the riders to experience the sandy beaches of Prince Edward Island and the challenge and beauty of the Cabot Trail running around the edge of Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island – over 300 km of stunning ocean views, waterfalls, highland scenery, small fishing villages and river valleys. Finally the cyclists arrive in Newfoundland, fondly known as ‘The Rock’, and pedal into colourful St John’s and its quaint harbour where their incredible Canadian Cycling Adventure draws to a close.
