“Often when we think of epic rides, our minds quickly turn to the storied routes of Europe. But we have Epic right here in our own backyard. This ride is spectacular. The scenery, the camaraderie, the journey, the memories. All Epic!” — CURT HARNETT (Multi-medalist, Olympic Cycling)
The Canadian Rockies are one of the most beautiful places on earth and will be home to this “bucket list” ride – 1001 km from Lake Louise to Whistler. Cycle through some of the most breathtaking scenery on the planet! Join fellow riders on daily rides of 110-180 km. You will stay in rustic chalets and lodges that offer dramatic vistas of mountains and rivers. Highlights include a ride from the Sunwapta Falls Resort, past Jasper and the Continental Divide to the Mt Robson Resort, in the shadow of the Canadian Rockies’ highest peak. You will be transfixed by the incredible scenery, but also by the amazing feeling of accomplishment at the end of each day. Join your ride-mates for special dinners, discussion of the day’s highlights and some unique musical entertainment! Join us in one of the most beautiful parts of the world for this once in a lifetime cycling adventure – challenging your mind and body for a great cause.
