canadian rockies, need cycling maps

Friend,

Do you have any cycling maps, or any good maps, for British Columbia and Alberta. I'm doing a ride from Portland to Denver and will ride through the southern Canadian rockies, over into Waterton Glacier Park, down through Montana, etc...

Any maps or route suggestions are helpful.

in spirit,

Mark Schneider, Denver

Check out this web site for some info on Alberta.

Also go to the local Parks Canada office in Banff or Jasper before riding the icefields parkway and ask if they have a brochure on the parkway. They used to have one that listed every campsite, rest stop, view point, trailhead etc. along the entire route. I have found it invaluable. Leave time to take a few days to hike along the route. Most trails can be done with a sturdy pair of trail shoes which can double as bike shoes unless you go clipless.
