If you’ve never been to Canada’s Glacier, Banff and Jasper National parks, you’re missing some incredible beauty.

Canada is a beautiful country and it can be wild and dangerous. I rode the Canadian Corduroy Enduro and finished and had a blast. Most beautiful and rugged.

Sent for the Pass, not sure how much use I'll get from it as I'm told it doesn't apply to the Provincial Parks.

I did a HOG fly and ride to Vancouver Island back in 05. It was the ride of a lifetime. The old logging road between Nanaimo and Tofino and Pacific Rim National park is a world class ride. Well worth the time and trouble.

Funny, I did the same fly and ride back in 2005, picked up the bike at Trev Deeley's and took the ferry over to VI.
Rode Rt4 to Tofino.
Day 2 went up trough Whitler, Lillooet then south through Hope.

Thanks for the link for the free pass!

I'd love to ride to Canada, but I think I might get a bit wet!
