1 Fundy Tidal Trail, New Brunswick This 215-km road route begins and ends in Moncton. The main highlights are riding through Fundy National Park — and a stop at Rocks Provincial Park, where the awesome Flower Pot Rocks have been carved out by the strength of the world’s highest tides.
2 Greater Victoria Regional Trail System, Vancouver Island After cycling across Victoria’s Selkirk Trestle, riders soon arrive at the Regional Trail Switch Bridge, where t hey can choose one of two worthwhile routes: The 29- km Lochside Trail north to Sidney or t he 55- km Galloping Goose Trail west to Sooke.
3 Gatineau Hills, Ontario and Quebec Ottawa alone has more than 100 km of wonderful cycling trails, and a short ride across the Alexander Bridge into Quebec leads to Gatineau Park, where cyclists can explore the 30-km Promenade dela Gatineau Loop. This ride from Ottawa and back is best in the fall when you can enjoy the brilliantly coloured foliage.
4 Golden Triangle, Alberta and British Columbia Explore the magnificent Rockies on this challenging road ride of about 300 km, beginning and ending at Castle Mountain Junction. You’ll ride through three spectacular national parks and encounter three mountain passes. Riders definitely work up a sweat on some long, gruelling climbs.
5 Icefields Parkway, Alberta Linking Jasper and Lake Louise, this magnificent 232- km route in the heart of the Rockies is my personal favourite. Riders face two challenging mountain passes — and several opportunities for side trips to fantastic hiking trails and spectacular lookouts.
6 Kettle Valley Railway Trail, British Columbia This abandoned railway bed winds for about 600 km through central B. C., between Hope and Midway. My favourite section of this route is Myra Canyon, near Kelowna. I cycled over 18 spectacular trestles and through two blasted rock tunnels in a mere 10 km.
7 Magdalen Islands, Quebec This province offers a wonderful trail system but for something different, I suggest a five- hour ferry ride f rom Souris, P. E. I. , to the Magdalen Islands. You’ll find lots of sand dunes, secluded beaches, rocky promontories as you ride the 85-km route on this archipelago of islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
8 Prince Edward County, Ontario “Quinte’s Isle” is a beautiful peninsula in Ontario, just south of Belleville. Much of the ride is on quiet rural, relatively flat roads without a paved shoulder. You’ll pass several vineyards and might choose to stop for a wine tasting. Also check out Sandbanks Provincial Park, with its ocean-like setting and beautiful sand dunes.
9 P.E.I. National Park, Prince Edward Island The paths and boardwalks along this shorter ( 35 km) and relatively easy route of f er opportunities f or viewing sand dunes, red sandstone cliffs, and access to some of eastern Canada’s finest beaches. I recommend rewarding yourself with a traditional lobster supper after the ride!
10 The Viking Trail, Newfoundland This challenging 450- km route t akes riders f rom Deer Lake, along the rugged coast, through spectacular Gros Morne National Park, and onto the northern tip of Newfoundland ( check out L’Anse aux Meadows). Be on the lookout for whales and icebergs along the coast — and moose along the route!
