Date/Time: Friday June 11, New Start Time: 10:30am 

Coordinator: Tanya Colwell

Distance: 115 km

Pace: 25-28 kph - Limited stops

Elevation Gain: 1,700 m

Description:  Because once is not enough... this ride ascends the highest paved road in Canada twice! An epic route, climbing the pass from both directions, starting from the North side. The whole ride is above the winter gate, with no cars on the road until June 15.

Please come prepared with clothing for changeable mountain weather conditions. We will be gaining significant elevation -- even on a nice day, it will be colder higher up and the long descent can be very chilly. As the entire route is closed to cars, make sure you are self-sufficient with all the food, water, and emergency supplies required for a long day. 

Parking: Start from Pocaterra in Peter Lougheed Park -- it's a nice spot for a tailgate social after the ride. 

Park Pass: Reminder! As of June 1, you must have a Kananaskis park pass to visit the park. See:


COVID-19 safety: Please stay with your group and maintain physical distancing throughout the event. Bring a mask for moments when physical distancing may not be possible. Car-pooling with people outside your immediate household is discouraged.
