The Alberta Rockies 700 Classic was the original bikepacking challenge in the region. With over 700km of mixed gravel and pavement with some huge climbs and descents, this route is the perfect way to explore the Rocky Mountain range.
As a point-to-point route, it will take a bit more planning and coordination, but is guaranteed to put a smile on your face as you explore the foothills of the Rockies, what may feel like a stone’s throw from the Prairies.
This route was created by Jonathan Hayward.
