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.

eValley Tours

Edmonton, Alberta

We are proud to be the first to market Pedelec (ebike) tours in North America. A World Class Pedelec Bicycle Tour operated by Revolution Cycle in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. A pedelec (from pedal electric cycle) is a bicycle where the rider’s pedaling is assisted by a small electric motor; thus they are a type of low-powered e-bike. However, unlike some other types of e-bikes, pedelecs are classified as conventional bicycles in many countries by road authorities rather than as a type of electric moped. Pedelecs include an electronic controller which cuts power to the motor when the rider is not pedaling or when a certain speed (in Canada 32 km/h (20 MPH)) has been reached. Pedelecs are useful for people who ride in hilly areas or in strong headwinds. A pedelec can be any style of bicycle, but a pedelec city bike is very common.Our current activities include a 5 hour tour and a 2 hr tour available Monday through Saturday. We do special request Team building tours with more options coming all the time.
