Bike Trip 2011
View Larger Map
The preliminary route for the Bike Trip 2011 (needs a better name). Aiming for Aug 26-29.
Day 1 - Stoon - Edmonton (526km) for the Sprint Car races Friday night! (Youtube it. 800hp=Awesome!!!)
Day 2 - Edmonton-Jasper (364km). A short ride so I'm thinking tour around the park a bit when we get there. Mt. Edith Cavell Glacier is a cool ride. So is Maligne Lake.
Day 3 - Jasper-Calgary (415km or 546km). Also a short day but those that are interested can add 130km by going through Peter Lougheed Park and Bragg Creek. A worthwhile detour me thinks.
Day 4 - Calgary - Stoon (613km).
I know it's longer than last year, but really, how many bike trips are you taking this year? And it's only 4 days. You didn't buy that thing just to look at it did you?
