Banff National Park features some of Canada’s most scenic roads and trails. Two wheels are the perfect way to explore, whether you want to take the family for a lakeside spin, tackle gruelling road climbs, or enjoy the thrill of a tree-lined downhill trail. There are many options, both on-road and off-road, for cyclists of all ages and abilities.
The road and mountain biking season typically runs from May through to October, although some roads open up for cyclists earlier in the year. Fat biking is a fun option when snow is covering the trails and roads.
Whatever the season, weather in the mountains is unpredictable so make sure you are prepared with a repair kit, tools, and warm waterproof layers. You should also be aware of wildlife. Check Parks Canada’s website for more information about biking safety and wildlife advisories.
