Stay in the Loop
We hope you had a great Canada Day and spent the day celebrating on your bike.
If your summer cycling calendar still has openings check out two convenient loop tours that start and end in the same cities.
We'll be riding the Rocky Mountains in western Canada and southern shores in Ontario.Tweet
Rocky Mountain Loop
Calgary is the start point/destination for Cycle Canada's 12-day loop in Alberta and British Columbia. On this supported expedition ride we'll travel through Banff, Vermillion Pass, Radium Hot Springs and Kananaskis Country. New for 2016 is a rest day in Waterton Lakes National Park. Challenge level: 3 cogs. Learn more: Rocky Mountain.
New! Erie Shores Loop
For 2016 we have changed the focus for Erie Shores to southwestern Ontario's lake district. Windsor, the southernmost big city in Canada, is the start point/destination. Cyclists travel the shores of Lake Erie, Lake Huron and Lake St. Clair, as well as the Thames and Detroit Rivers. It's mostly a farm district with quiet country roads on an old alluvial plain that is very flat. The biggest hills in Essex County are the freeway overpasses Challenge level: 2 cogs.

About Cycle Canada . . .
Cycle Canada has been organizing affordable supported cycling expeditions and vacations throughout Canada since 1987. Our primary focus is to offer an enjoyable cycling experience. We encourage participants in our events to ride at their own pace and to join us with the goal of completing their tour by bicycle. We believe participants will enjoy a cycling trip more in groups where they get to know other riders and share the pleasure of travelling as cycle tourists.
