Why Tour by Bike:
We believe that travelers are more frequently looking for something a bit more authentic and unique these days. To join a tour where they can be fully immersed and present in a location, culture and experience.
With 3 national parks (Jasper, Banff and Waterton) located here in Western Canada, Alberta, What better way to explore these spectacular locations than from the seat of a bike.
It’s human powered travel at its best with no roof to get in the way of the soaring mountain peaks, and no windows to insulate the traveler from the sounds of untouched natural surroundings.
Participants will be immersed in the fresh clean mountain air and travel at a pace that enables them to take full advantage of all their senses feeling their surroundings in full HD.
Traveling by bike through these regions provides a great alternative to more traditional travel through the parks by Motor Coach, Self Drive or RV packages.
With our support, transport and logistics services this tour is a great combination of getting back to nature with the comfort of full van support, unique overnight hotel accommodations and quality food along the way.
Who Typically Joins our tours:
Our current demographic is between 40 – 60 yrs old, 50/50 Male / Female and we’ve witnessed people with a large variety of fitness levels, ages, and cycling ability are able to complete this tour. All that’s required is an open, free spirit and a sense for adventure and we’ll take care of the rest.
Departures, Group sizes and Rental Bikes:
We offer regular scheduled guaranteed departures for 2 or more people and can accommodate singles, couples, small or larger groups. A typical group size for a tour is between 6 and 11 people keeping the experience intimate and personal. We can however with some notice look after groups of up to 30 on fully customized itineraries.
We have rental bikes available, including an e-bike option (electric pedal assist bike) and use well maintained, safe and comfortable Mercedes sprinter vans. We tow customized enclosed trailers to keep support equipment, food, supplies, and participants bikes out of the weather and secure during the tour.
