EBTC Jasper to Canmore July 2018
When: Fri, 20-Jul-2018 - Mon, 23-Jul-2018
Where: Edmonton, AB
Jasper to Canmore Supported
Date: Friday, July 20th to Monday, July 23th, 2018
Description: Come join us on a cycling adventure from Jasper to Canmore! This trip has reputedly some of the most stunning scenery to be found anywhere in the world. There are tough climbs on this ride but don’t let that deter you … ebikes are an option and can be rented at, for example, Revolution or United Cycle. Your efforts won’t go unrewarded because on the last day of this trip, Lake Louise to Canmore, it is 83 km of almost all downhill. This is definitely a ‘wilderness’ trip because we’ll be staying in hostels (although the Lake Louise Alpine Centre is pretty posh relatively speaking!). All bedding is provided by the hostels (clean pillows, sheets, blankets). All meals are included starting from dinner on July 20 to lunch on July 23. To ensure a timely start on the morning of July 20, we will be loading bikes into the trailer on the evening of July 19. Each bike will be wrapped in a moving blanket so your precious cargo will be well taken care of. A pre-trip meeting will be held closer to the date. You must be a 2018 EBTC Member to register.
Participants: Maximum of 24 riders (If we have a sufficient number of people on the waitlist, we will consider opening another Jasper to Canmore trip in August)
Cost: $600.00 per person. Includes bus transportation from Edmonton and return, National Park fee, all accommodations, truck support, snacks on the road, and all breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Does not cover the cost of lunch on Day 1 and dinner on Day 4.
Registration: $300.00 deposit is required through Karelo – registration opens November 26th, 2017. Balance of trip fees ($300.00) are to be paid via Karelo no later than June 15th, 2018.
Note: Participants should ensure they are familiar with the EBTC refund policy regarding rider cancellations. Please contact the Ride Coordinator if you have any questions.
Location: Ride begins just before Jasper and finishes in Canmore. Each participant is responsible for getting their bike to the TBD pre-loading point at 7:00 pm on Thursday, July 19. The departure point on the morning of July 20th is the parking lot at the Chateau Nova on 139th Street and Yellowhead (car-pooling is encouraged). Group parking will be arranged.
Bus driving distance from Edmonton: About 4 hours plus a stop in Edson.
