I'm going to be heading out to Calgary to meet with some friends & family on Thursday (tomorrow) and coming back in time for Bike Night next week and was wondering if anyone had some suggestions of must ride roads on the way there and back.
The plan as of now is to hit Hwy 1 -> Hwy 3 + ???? on the way there then come up into Banff and into Calgary, I'm going to be splitting the getting there into two days and hope to roll in to Calgary around 6pm-ish. I will be leaving Calgary early Monday AM and taking about 3 days to ride back, working my way through Montana, Idaho and then WA via the Cascades and finishing with Baker and WA back-roads to the border.
I have no clue what roads are really worth riding past HWY3 and this is what I need help with. I've only ridden it to Princeton. I also have no idea about what roads are worth riding and which ones are worth avoiding on the way back as I've never done the cascades or any rides down south with the exception of a few back-roads towards Bellingham and several Baker.
I'm fine with consecutive 10+ hour days in the saddle as well as days in excess of 800km.
Cheers for any input!
