Itinerary

Great Plains

Riders will leave Calgary, home to its world famous stampede and head out onto the Great Plains, a vast high plateau of semiarid grassland, stretching almost 2000 kms from the Rocky Mountains to the Canadian Shield. Once home to immense herds of buffalo, the area now contains many other grassland-adapted animals that thrive together with agriculture, including prairie dogs, coyotes, prairie chickens, and rattlesnakes. The Badlands around Drumheller are considered the ‘Dinosaur Capital of the World’ for their incredible collection of well-preserved bones.

The route on to Winnipeg passes through vast fields of canola and wheat, the endless horizon occasionally broken by towering grain elevators. A rest day in Regina will allow the cyclists to explore the Royal Saskatchewan Museum’s exhibits on Canada’s Aboriginal peoples and native animals or to learn about Canada’s famous Royal Mounted Police at their Heritage Centre while another on the beaches of Lake Minnedosa will give them a welcome break from the relentless prairie sun. Two more days of pedalling lead to Winnipeg and the end of this epic section.
