Looking for people to cycle with from Vancouver to Calgary

I really want to bike from Vancouver to Calgary over the summer, through the Okanagan and Banff, hopefully starting in June next year. I want to be in Calgary by July 1st. I've never done a trip anywhere near as long as this, so I would appreciate any feedback - any at all. I would prefer to avoid the highway if at all possible. I'm looking for advice from people, as well as anyone who wants to come along with me. I'm not the fittest person you'll ever meet, nor the most knowledgeable about bikes, but I'm strong willed and that's what ultimately counts when embarking on a trip like this. Having said that, I do need to start seriously training :-).

Any comments would be welcome. If someone has done this, or a similar, trip before, I would really highly appreciate the feedback. Feel free to e-mail me too.

Happy cycling!

Don't miss the icefields parkway, if you can manage the time.
