Cycling & Mountain Biking Summer Outdoor Activities

Whether you're going up or down, cycling in Alberta is accessible, adrenaline-filled and addictive. Get ready for some of the most scenic rides in the world. • Only here: The Icefields Parkway from Banff to Jasper is a bucket-list ride past mountains and glaciers. You’ll redefine exhilarating. • City cycling: Edmonton and Calgary each have a developing system of bike lanes handy for commuting from brunch to lunch. • Day trip: The 27-km Banff Legacy Trail connects the alpine towns of Banff and Canmore. The trail is comfortably separated from the highway. It takes two to four hours round-trip, give or take time for mountain-gaping and deer spotting. 

Live a winter morning of adventure in the Canadian Rockies. From the heart of Calgary to trails south of Canmore, the world changes from a metropolis to a winter wonderland.
