LET'S CELEBRATE..... CANADA 150 and 34 years of Golden Triangle rides!!

Come and enjoy.....Golden Triangle cycling in one of North America’s most spectacular settings – waterfalls, hanging glaciers, towering peaks and NA’s longest contiguous wetland along the Columbia River!

It starts at Castle Mountain Gravel Pit located 26 km west of Banff near the junction of Hwy 1A and Hwy 93. The tour travels clockwise from Castle Mountain to Radium to Golden and back to Castle Mountain. The total distance is approximately 320 km. Photos from the 2013 GT here .  Short GT video here.  One of the thank you letters we received after the 2016 GT  here.

We carry your gear for three days, feed you and provide support to you. Be ready for changeable mountain weather, longish 7-8% grades and do some pre-GT riding to get in shape.

We will deliver your luggage to the campground or to a list of hotels/motels provided in the questionnaire in the registration. Baggage tags for hotel luggage will be available at check-in to direct your bags to the right venue each afternoon. Luggage will be picked up at each hotel/motel the next morning.
