Itinerary

ROCKY MOUNTAINS

This spectacular section begins in Vancouver, one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Riders will spin away from the Pacific Ocean along the Fraser River stopping for a soak in the soothing Harrison Hot Springs. The route continues through the Coastal Mountain Range, climbing up through some challenging passes and sub-alpine meadows into Manning Provincial Park. The riders now begin to descend into the Okanagan Valley and its orchards and wineries for rest day in Penticton, home to the legendary lake monster Ogopogo.

The cyclists now pedal north to Shuswap Lake where they will join the Trans-Canada Highway and head east up into the Rocky Mountains. The route takes them past the small town of Craigellachie where the "Last Spike" of the Canadian Pacific Railway’s transcontinental railroad was hammered in on November 7, 1885, finally joining the young country together. Riders are rewarded for their efforts with a rest day in gorgeous Lake Louise, situated in stunning Banff National Park before they leave the Rockies and spin down into Calgary and the end of this amazing section.
