Two wheels will take you places where four wheels could never go. And Alberta is brimming with places – pedal leisurely through an alpine meadow, a boreal forest or on wide paved shoulders under an endless prairie sky. Cycle urban pathways through gorgeous river valleys. Put the Icefields Parkway on your bucket list, one of the most scenic rides in the world.
Challenge yourself to some extreme mountain biking or join a Gran Fondo through a national park. Come back in winter and try out the hottest new winter sport – fat biking. These mountain bikes sport ultra-wide balloon-like tires that enable riders to virtually float over snow. Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park has 30 km (18 mi) of fat-bike trails, but any bike path will provide winter thrills.
There are lots of places where you can rent bikes – in our major cities, mountain parks and adjacent towns. Take the road less travelled!
