Canada's top ten biking spots

The Canada Tourism Commission recently came out with its top ten biking spots. How many have you pedaled?

1. Prince Edward Island - Don't bring your bike, PEI has more than 25 bike rental shops

2. La Route verte - A 4,000 km network of trails crisscrossing Quebec, the most extensive in North America

3. Saskatchewan - Really? Try Highway 56 that winds through the lush Qu'Appelle Valley

4. Kettle Valley Rail Trail - BC's long-abandoned right of way (includes tunnels/bridges)

5. Cabot Trail - Fishing villages, beaches, rolling green hills and even whales in Nova Scotia

6. Capital Pathway - A network of loops and dedicated cycling trails in Ottawa

7. Bike Train - Ride the rails in Ontario with Via Rail

8. Boreale Mountain Biking - Serious biking! Stay in yurts near Whitehorse in the Yukon

9. Riding Mountain National Park - Pedal with moose, elk and black bears in Manitoba

10. Kananaskis Country - For fat-tire aficionados who love Alberta's Rocky Mountains
