Banff National Park, celebrating its 125th year in 2010, is hosting the third annual Banff National Park Bike Fest.
The Alberta Bicycle Association-sanctioned road race event is June 17-20, 2010. This year there are five races: Individual Time Trial, 80km 1A Sprint, Criterium, Tunnel Mountain Road Race and the new Surprise Corner Prologue.
Cyclists race through the streets of Banff and throughout Banff National Park. The various courses include hairpin turns; bikers will encounter breakaway sprints and fierce competition; and spectators can idly stand by and soak up the scenery of the Rockies.
In addition to Banff National Park turning 125 this year, Parks Canada is 100 years old.
