Biking in Banff National Park
Banff National Park features some of Canada’s most scenic roadways and trails, making it an exciting destination to explore on two wheels. Rides here will take you through beautiful sub-alpine forest, next to sparkling waters of glacier-fed lakes and under Banff’s most iconic peaks.
Rides are available to cyclists of all kinds, from those content to pedal along scenic roads to mountain enthusiasts eager to tackle a rocky, root-laden singletrack. Go out for a quick spin or pack up your panniers for a longer tour; there’s a perfect bike ride awaiting you in Canada’s flagship national park.
Though some roads open up for cyclists earlier in the year, the road and mountain biking season in Banff National Park typically spans from May to October. Weather in the mountains is unpredictable even in summer, so be prepared with extra layers. Trail conditions can change at a moment’s notice due to snowfall, snowmelt and mud.
