Rid­ers from eight re­gions across the coun­try re­veal the best bumpy routes

Cana­di­ans l ook­ing to get off the paved path have no short­age of gravel op­tions. In fact, we’re spoiled for choice. The chal­lenge isn’t so much find­ing an un­paved route, but to pick a great one. Not only must it have a mix of good sur­faces and chal­leng­ing conditions, but great views as well. You’ll need to keep fu­elled, so cafés, bak­eries, gen­eral stores and brew­eries fac­tor into the making of a great gravel route. And shouldn’t the de­gree of ad­ven­ture also be a con­sid­er­a­tion? Yes. Yes, it should.

Here, ex­perts from across the coun­try give you the skinny on rid­ing not-so-skinny tires in their re­gions. You’re sure to find just the place to head to this sum­mer for an ex­cel­lent ad­ven­ture.
