Canada is big, very big! Anyone who has travelled across the country can attest to that. And for any cyclist, the idea of making this mythic trip by bicycle is an alluring dream! It’s the ultimate challenge, an opportunity to excel, an extraordinary achievement, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Imagine hearing yourself say, “I did it!” And just think of the generous diversity of the landscapes: the staggering peaks of the Rockies, the majestic flat expanses of the Prairies, the countless waterways of Ontario—so much variety, so many unforgettable sights to see from the seat of your bike. From Vancouver to Montréal. A 5,300-kilometre, seven-week journey! A definite highlight of our next season.
