This is one of our easier and more relaxed tours and is all graded highway, we can throw a bit of off road stuff in there and most people do choose to do the Reco Mountain Ride made famous by the guys on Top Gear, we can also usually manage the central loop around Revelstoke, Sicamous, Vernon, Nakusp, And the Galena Bay Ferry.
This is a fantastic opportunity to ride some of the best roads in BC and Alberta and includes the entire length of the Icefields Parkway.
There will be plenty of room for siteseeing, and some of the best twisties Canada has to offer!
