Cross Canada 2015
« on: March 11, 2015, 05:56:02 pm »
Hi All,

I will be riding across Canada this summer, then hopefully down to LA. I am giving myself six weeks to make the journey. It is my post-divorce gift to myself. I will be camping as much as possible, riding a T100, and trying to keep cost down.

Any tips, experiences, advice, must see destinations are welcome.

Although I have not been there (yet), I would not miss Banff National Park.

Sounds like it will be a great trip, along for the ride....

Where you starting from? Not gonna lie, Saskatchewan is beautiful, but BORING lol. Depending on your route, swing through Saskatoon instead of Regina. Great city and Broadway is a great street to check out.

starting in early June, from Toronto. Heading out to Algonquin, then up through thunderbay and out west from there.

have a good handle on the gear, and documents and such, but I was really hoping to get some good suggestions on sites and roads.

Head west, young man. Write an update on how it went.

Calgary stop over on the road to Banff, Whistler to Vancouver, take the ferry to Vancouver Island to Victoria, cross over to Port Angeles, 101 and 1 all the way down. #$%* I-5!! You need MINIMUM of 1 week on the west coast if you want to 'smell the roses' vs just ride all the time.

Cut across on the way back. MANY great places in the western US to see on a bike!! Plan your trip TO LA first (thats the EASY part) then we can work on the return. This will be icing on your cake!! I've done most of the western US and been into western Canada twice. If you make it through Colorado you have a place to crash. Can you do more than 6 weeks?

CONGRATS on the big D!! A #$%*ty marriage and a great divorce does wonders for your brain    ;)

PM me for details. It can get intense and thats a good thing  ;D ;)
As of today 3/13/2012 my original owner 75 CB750F has made it through 3 wives, er EX-wives. Free at last.  ;-)

Craigellachie, just west of Revelstoke BC, it's where the Last Spike was nailed on the trans Canada Railway Nov 7 1885.
