Done in a Day: Calgary
The 10 Premier Road Rides
Where to invest your limited Alberta cycling time
to enjoy the greatest scenic reward.
Spring through fall, southwest Alberta offers cyclists blue-ribbon road riding: from alpine passes in the Canadian Rockies, to dinosaur-country river canyons on the edge of the prairie. Done in a Day Calgary is a compact, jersey-pocket-sized guide to the creme de la creme of Alberta cycling: the ten most serene, compelling, bike-friendly roads in the region. Choose an easy, vigourous, or challenging ride. Start pedaling within a short drive of Calgary. At day's end, be back for a hot shower, great meal, and soft bed. Done in a Day Calgary includes Waterton National Park, Kananaskis Country, Sheep River Valley, Elbow River Valley, Canmore, Banff National Park, the Bow Valley Parkway (Banff to Lake Louise), the Icefields Parkway (north of Lake Louise), Drumheller, and Red Deer.
