We will meander our way through many lakeside roads, twists and turn to ride back into Alberta, the views will not disappoint as we make our way back to Calgary but first;
Our last night is spent at the Infamous Longview Twin Cities Saloon, where it is known as “THEE” motorcycle destination in Alberta.
There is a lot of history in the town of Longview and many stories all riders will be glad to share with you.
Just when you think you have seen all the amazing views, our final day we will climb Canada’s Highest Paved Pass, over 7300′ in elevation.
