The world and its dog have flown in to the US to ride the same old, worn out cliché that is Route 66. Ev­ery Har­ley rider from both sides of the pond has been there and done that. Canada, how­ever, is fresh beauty; it’s where you need to be for the great­est rid­ing week of your life and have a real ad­ven­ture in the Rock­ies with a GS, on open roads, with epic back­drops and more wildlife than you can shake a bro­ken twig at. Its best fea­ture is the vast amount of noth­ing­ness. Bri­tish Columbia, es­pe­cially, of­fers a true sense of ad­ven­ture that’s get­ting harder and harder to find th­ese days. You can rent a bike on­line from van­cou­ver.cy­clebc.ca and have an epic trip rid­ing through BC, the scenery is so gor­geous it’s al­most fake; you’ll be tempted to stretch out your fin­gers and touch it to dou­ble check. The roads slic­ing through the awe-in­spir­ing land­scapes are pep­pered with wildlife in­clud­ing griz­zlies, elk and hawks. You’ll ride by wa­ter­falls, huge glaciers, the Ice­fields Park­way and won’t want to come home. It’ll cost around £600 for a week rental and re­turn flights are around £700. B&BS are pop­u­lar and cost £45 a night on av­er­age, with food and drink match­ing UK prices. Go for it, you’ll love it.

So gor­geous it’s al­most un­real, make Canada

your desti­na­tion
