Cycling Canada's most difficult climbs

Fraser River as seen from McBride Peak, British Columbia, Canada

We traveled to the wonderful country of Canada (we LOVE Canada and Canadians!) 2015 to document the top 10 Canadian bike climbs, most of which are in the Canadian Rockies, home to Banff (Highwood Pass - highest paved pass in Canada) and the incomparable Jasper (Marmot Basin) National Parks.

MCBRIDE PEAK

. . . while we do recommend more than 23mm, the fat boys are a bit overkill . . . 🐭 v. 🐘
