I was directed to this part of the forum for the following questions. Ive heard here are the right people to talk to.
I am doing a bike tour starting in West Canada (Vancouver) pretty soon. I ve done a lot of thinking about the route but I am having troubles to decide: Should I ride
1. down the pacific coast
2. the Great Parks Route as described here: http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/greatparks.cfm
how remote is the route through the rockies regarding villages passing through etc.?
I love the mountains and outdoors but I would also like to get to know some people on this trip (coming from Germany and curious), maybe have a drink somewhere every other week.. is that possible on the Great parks route or would you rather recommend the pacific coast?
I heard that traffic can be heavy on both routes. How about scenery, sights..? Which route would you do?
thanks for all advice and help
