My wife and I run a small touring company called Adventures In Tandem. We cater to couples who own their own travel tandems and like to tour. We are running a tour from Calgary to Lake Louise and want the first day of the tour to be a ride around Calgary.
We are staying at the Bearspaw Lodge for the first two nights, so the ride has to start and end there. The lodge is located at 80 Woodlands Estates Dr, Calgary, AB T3R 1H1.
I created a few possible routes, and I am hoping a local person can look them over and let me know what you think. Ultimately I am looking for a ride of around 30 miles, mostly on bike paths if possible, that shows off some of the best spots in your beautful city.
Here are the routes I created:
CR1c: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/19567909 - this one is really too long
I'll be leading a group of 10 tandems (on my own tandem), so it will be a bit of a challenge. They will mostly have Garmins, but I know at least one team doesn't use GPS at all.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
