Hi all,

Have been trying to find out some of the worlds great cycling trips and I was hoping you could help me out with this? At the moment we've got the beginning of a list: http://www.worldreviewer.com/experiences/cycling/ but Lake Minnewanka near Banff is on the top - is that right?

Thanks for your help!

  • It really doesn't get cold until Dec. Jan. time frame, however it is high altitude so you can expect some snow and maybe frost -10 to -15 at night 2 to 10 C in the day depending on the wind. Dress warm in layers that way you are ready for anything, I would be a little hesitant about swimming, you may need to carry an axe to cut a hole in the ice.

    Cold? It was bleedin' cold when I was there in the middle of summer, during a heatwave. Like a warm winters day here.

    I think that what defines a cycling trip as great is really down to the individual and what they want in a trip:Scenery, culture, challenge, touring , commercial / organised etc. The site appears to rely on folk posting their favourites rather than an authoritive list

    The area around Banff is certainly one of the most stunningly beautiful parts of the planet.
