Alberta Rockies 700/500

A 700 km self-supported bikepacking event/race, now with a 500 km version AND a new loop format. The routes now start and finish in Canmore, AB, travelling south down the front range of the Rocky Mountains towards Fernie, and into the Flathead. There are plenty of gruelling climbs and epic downhills (the shorter 500 km loop includes 8100m of climbing, whereas the 700 km has 11,600m or so). You will pass through small towns with a history of coal mining, ride beside glacier fed creeks, and experience some amazing panoramas.
