Hi all -
Well, we are working our way through SE Asia and dreaming of Canada! We plan to cross the country next year but we'd also like to live a long life and it's just no fun riding with cars whizzing past so we want to do it without touching the TCH if possible, even though that will add a considerable distance to the trip. We admit that in some parts, the TCH might be the only option but we would like to circumvent it and other busy highways as much as possible.
This is where you come in. What routes spring to mind as being good cycling routes? If we get some good suggestions, maybe we can play connect the dots. We will start in Vancouver and we have to pass through Edmonton and Saskatoon (family). We would also like to hit Sudbury. We don't mind going way off the beaten track - reckon we can pack food for a week - and wild camping. We are pretty familiar with the Maritime provinces but suggestions for BC and Manitoba/northern Ontario would be particularly welcome.
