Some visitors from Nova Scotia

Edith Cavell — Bike Ride

Still ear­ly sea­son to vis­it Edith Cavell, as the road is still closed to the motor­ized vehi­cles, but not to self pro­pelled activ­i­ties. This area is a must see attrac­tion if you are ever in Jasper.

The road should be ready to open May long week­end, but it is still up to Parks Canada to decide when it will be avail­able to motor­ized vehi­cles.

We chose to ride our bikes to the top of the road but there was still snow cov­ered areas that forced us off our bikes. You can rent bikes at the local bike shops like Free­wheel Cycle, moun­tain or road.

Oops, snow is a lit­tle thick

It is refresh­ing to hike, a cou­ple we met that hails from Nova Sco­tia did the hike.  We biked on the road and not wor­ry about cars, spe­cial­ly on the descent.

Nego­ti­at­ing the path

This ride was the kick off to the chal­lenge for May. Get­ting out to Nature for 30 min­utes a day for 30 days, are you ready for that chal­lenge? More info below about this great chal­lenge.
