200km 'ish'

So yay probably won't be biking into the glorious Rocky Mountains. But rather riding south from Calgary ALONG the mountains. From the blog chatter, the lovely Canadian Parks Service required park passes for all 1000 ish participants who were biking plus all the crew etc etc. Gotta love that. But actually to not have to bike UP a mountain, thanks Parks Canada. Woohoo.

So now I'm doing the guessing game. If I was a betting person I'd say start would be Spruce Meadows, just for sheer volume of space they have. Then on highway 22 up through Turner Valley basically into the Crowsnest Pass. Which for me is very fitting, on to that in a minute. Pincher Creek doesn't seem like a great end place, no offence, so I wonder where we will end.

Crowsnest Pass, the one place in this entire world that my Dad LOVED! He would take his Motorcycle up there as much as he could. And that is the area right where the fork in the road happens (where 22 hits the 3) where my daddy's going to take his final journey on his bike. We have adopted a 3 kilometer portion of the road where my dad will be forever memorialized by us.

So thank you Parks Canada because if this is true and we do take this path, then it will even be more special to me.
