Jasper to Canmore Cycling Trip
July 20 @ 07:00 - July 23 @ 17:00$600
Jasper to Canmore Cycling Trip July 20/21/22/23 (4 days/3 nights)
Come join us on a cycling adventure from Jasper to Canmore! This trip has reputedly some of the most stunning scenery to be found anywhere in the world. There are tough climbs on this ride but don’t let that deter you … ebikes are an option and can be rented at, for example, Revolution or United Cycle. Your efforts won’t go unrewarded because on the last day of this trip, Lake Louise to Canmore, it is 83 km of almost all downhill. This is definitely a ‘wilderness’ trip because we’ll be staying in hostels (although the Lake Louise Alpine Centre is pretty posh relatively!). All bedding is provided by the hostels (clean pillows, sheets, blankets). All meals are included starting from dinner on July 20 to lunch on July 23. To ensure a timely start on the morning of July 20, we will be loading bikes into the trailer on the evening of July 19. Each bike will be wrapped in a moving blanket so your precious cargo will be well taken care of. A pre-trip meeting will be held closer to the date. A deposit of $300 is required at time of sign up.
You must be a 2018 EBTC Member to register.
