Cycling & Mountain Biking Summer Outdoor Activities

Two wheels will take you places where four wheels could never go. And Alberta is brimming with places – pedal leisurely through an alpine meadow, a boreal forest or on wide paved shoulders under an endless prairie sky. Cycle urban pathways through gorgeous river valleys. Challenge yourself to some extreme mountain biking or join a Gran Fondo through a national park. Put the Icefields Parkway, one of the most scenic rides in the world, on your bucket list.

Without Wheels in the Wild?

Nancy Gordy Tourism Jasper

From train travel to group tours, there may be times when you don't have access to a set of wheels to explore Jasper National Park, but don't let this drive you crazy!
