The Perfect Riding Climate

“Canada’s cold weather myth:” we don't all live in igloos! Although Canada is renowned for our harsh winters, they are offset by our great summers. Not too hot, not too cold, perfect for riding. 

July and August are our warmest months with temperatures on the coast and in the mountains ranging in the low to mid 20s (Celsius). In the interior it can climb into the 30s, and even the 40s in some areas near the border. Over the past few years our warm summer weather has been stretching into September. Spring and Fall bring more chances of rain but since there is less traffic on the roads, some of the best riding can be had during the fall (with warm gear).

As we are north of the 49th parallel our summer days are long, with over 15 hours of daylight. The Sun will rise in the early morning and set in the evening around 9pm. This allows for a full days ride, but be careful as animals tend to be more active on the roads during the twilight hours.
