Cycle Canada offers opportunities to explore Canada by bicycle, in ways not possible with other forms of transportation. We organize short getaway tours of 2 days to 10 weeks, all great ways to see explore Canada, get fit and make new friends. Our shorter tours includes indoor accommodation and our longer tours, of two to ten weeks include accommodation that is mainly camping with some indoor stays. The cycling on these longer tours is generally more challenging with greater average daily distances.
The quality and affordability of our trips attract a wide range of cyclists. We route our tours on paved roads and shared use paths, except that on Tour Arctic includes the 750-kilometre (450-mile) Dempster Highway through Arctic tundra. Participants in our events come as solo riders, couples or in small groups and we regularly have customers who have done other trips with us. Our events attract cyclists from across Canada and around the world. Age range for all tours has been 7 to over 80. Group size on all our tours is intimate, mainly 10-40 riders.
Each of our tours is supported by our staff and a support vehicle carries your gear and group supplies. Riders have daily route sheets, developed and produced by Cycle Canada. Participants ride at their own pace to the day’s destination. We do find that most people link up with a few others on the tours who have similar riding habits.
