This evening, we’ll catch the train to Jasper, Alberta. Catching a train is much easier than an airplane: the bikes go in a big box so only the pedals need removing and the handlebars turning. Tomorrow afternoon we’ll arrive in Jasper, and on Thursday morning we leave Jasper to travel west and south. Last week, Canmore (300km SE of Jasper) had a big snow fall, but we understand the road is clear… but clearly leaving much earlier would have been risky. We have a plan A route, but there are so many alternates I will not describe them here. Just to say it is about a 900 km ride, through some of the most scenic countryside in the world.
