    Description
    We’ll pedal through rolling farmland, expansive ranchlands, and eventually make our way to the base of the front range of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. View Details

    As we ramble our way along quiet country lanes and secondary roads — with the accompanying van hauling most of our gear to our campsites — we’ll traverse grassland ridges, coast along broad valleys, and slip through roads that are closed to all vehicular traffic. We’ll ride in the tracks of pioneer ranchers – including the famous “Black Cowboy” John Ware, the hunting and foraging grounds of the first peoples of these lands, and explore hidden valleys only accessible by the most intrepid explorers. With very little vehicle traffic, we’ll visit local food and drink producers, enjoy the local hospitality in the villages of Turner Valley and Black Diamond, and work our way up the Sheep River Valley — just you, your bicycle, and some of the most majestic countryside in Southern Alberta.
