The Best Ride

Western Canada is hands down one of the best motorcycle touring areas in the world.

Riding in Canada can be summed up in one word: "Adventure." For motorcycle riding enthusiasts, there is no better way to explore the vast beauty of this country. The world is becoming more and more crowded. Remote destinations and empty roads are becoming more difficult to find. Come visit an area of untouched beauty, where grizzly bears and wolves still roam free and wild. These motorcycle trips will take you along roads through some of the most stunning scenery in the world.

The Ride

A seemingly endless amount of twisties, low traffic volume and spectacular scenery, what more could you ask for?

Western Canada's rugged geography sets the stage for some of the best riding in the world. Towering mountains, vast lakes and winding rivers provide thrilling roads for motorcyclists with numerous twists and turns en route to any destination.

Remote Wilderness

British Columbia is so immense that people who live here rarely see it all. It’s so vast that you’d need to devote well over a month to even begin to explore all the different roads and highways.

At almost one million square kilometers, BC is nearly four times the size of Great Britain, and larger than any USA state except Alaska. There are only 31 nations in the world larger in surface area than BC.

With all this land, one would assume a high head count, but BC’s population is just over 4.5 million, averaging 4.77 people per square kilometre.

Ever Changing Landscapes

BC is dominated by 10 main mountain ranges: the Rocky Mountains, Purcell Mountains, Selkirk Mountains, Monashee Mountains, Cariboo Mountains, Coast Mountains, Cassiar Mountains, Vancouver Island Ranges, Queen Charlotte Mountains, and St Elias Mountains. It is no wonder that BC has some of the best riding in the world. What goes up, must come down!

BC is home to a variety of different landscapes. The climate can change considerably over short distances. During the peak motorcycle riding months, from May to September, great weather is never hard to find. If you are riding in the summer months prepare for the heat, some places in the province can reach temperatures above 40 C.

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.
