This was my first experience with Ben and Mountain Madness Tours and I was very impressed. The ride itself is spectacular and Ben took very good care of his guests throughout the ride. I had been thinking about riding this route for several years and the opportunity to complete this iconic route fully supported was a great option. He provided briefings on what to expect on the ride each day prior to departure and at key points in the ride. He supported the riders during the ride with regular rest stops complete with snacks and refreshments. He booked all the rooms and the meals along the way, bringing our luggage to our rooms and ensuring we knew when and where to meet for our meals. Recommend this ride for any cyclist who has ever done a full day ride like a Fondo. Accomodation was comfortable in scenic settings and meals were excellent.

What a fabulous trip! Ben is an amazing leader. We had a great trip and lots of laughs because of Ben. He is super organized and extremely knowledgeable on the area. There is no better way to see the Rockies than being on a bike. I cannot recommend this trip enough

I booked a my 4 day Mountain Madness Jasper to Banff tour after a simple Google search. Essentially I was looking for a biking trip with some solitude and beautiful scenery and Ben’s website was one of the first hits. I did some number crunching to compare with similar biking excursions in the Rockies and this one came out as the best deal. From the start of the booking process, I could tell that this was an independently run business with fine attention to customer satisfaction. Ben was responsive and attentive to all of my emails right from the moment I booked the trip. He was very organised and his website’s FAQ section is very detailed giving you a lot of information you want to know about the ride. So on Thursday 20 July 2017, I caught a flight from London to Edmonton (via Toronto) and arrived in the late afternoon.

First thing on the Friday morning, Ben was in the hotel lobby and there began the trip. The ride itself was splendid. The scenery changed (as did the weather, but luckily hardly any rain except for near the glacier). At every checkpoint and lunch stop, Ben was waiting with the amazing snacks (chocolate coated Pretzels and M&M nut mix – yes please!) and chai. He also took lots of professional photos which he gives you on a USB stick at the end of the trip. By the last day, I was sad to leave such a fantastic trip and the other people on the tour were delightful and great fun.

It was so surprisingly well organised and was just perfect for someone like me as I didn’t have much time off work and really wanted to get on the bike and ride as soon as possible. The ride factors in plenty of time to do bits of sightseeing (e.g. Sunwapta Falls, Lake Louise and Lake Morrain) and you end up in Banff so I stayed an extra night there to do some hiking. I never for a moment felt as though we were being rushed, it was really possible to do everything at your own pace, although if you are an adrenaline junkie like me then that pace may be quite fast especially on all of the amazing downhill sections of the ride.

Ben is really a lovely, kind tour guide and was helpful and encouraging along the way. I would 100% come back and do it all again because I felt so very refreshed and energized after this trip. Thank you Ben and Mountain Madness Tours and I wish you all the best.

This was my first organized cycling road tour that I participated in and it totally exceeded my expectations! Ben is incredibly organized from booking to the end of the tour drop offs. He had each day lined up on a chart, descriptions of the terrain, distances to rest stops, etc. At each rest stop snacks set were out with stools ready for an energy recharge. He even swept gravel off of the shoulders of the some of the road and brought our bags right to our hotel room doors! There was extra equipment/accessories available for those who may have been missing extra items, like waterproof shoe covers. There were walkie talkies available to communicate with him when cell serve was unavailable, which was a great safety feature when we weren’t quite sure where the next regroup stop was. Hotels and restaurant choices were wonderful, comfortable and the food was awesome! He took very nice quality photos of us along the way and shared some epic shots that he had taken on previous tours. It was so great to not have to think or worry about any details; everything was handled. He was super chill and relaxed but also precise and very organized. I would totally recommend touring with Ben to anyone interested in road cycling touring through the Alberta Rockies AND I would LOVE to do another tour with him again! SO GOOD!

Best bike tour ever!! Ben is the best! Everything was perfect. Ben knows the route by heart, supporting us perfectly during the whole trip. I loved having a hot beverage at the breaks. The scenery is amazing! After the dinner, Ben was always ready for a little excursion to see the beautiful scenery. Don't hesitate, book with Ben.

Loved it! Ben and Bryan did everything they could to satisfy even our most finicky guest. Scenery is spectacular. You will see wildlife, including bears, elk, and free-range cattle. Food is excellent - fine dining can be found "out there." Accommodations were much better than I expected them to be - large, modern, and comfortable. The route will be challenging for most riders, but not overly so with the low gearing on Ben's rental bikes. You will enjoy this tour!

Ben took care of everything (and more) for this incredible ride from Jasper to Banff. From the time I arrived in Edmonton until the time I was dropped off in Calgary, all meals, transportation, and lodging were covered. Highly recommend for any level of cyclist!!!

How do you describe such a great ride??-WOW. Ben provided excellent customer service and support for the duration of the ride. The accommodation along the way was excellent as was the support vehicle. At every turn the scenery was spectacular and my head was on a swivel not knowing where to look. There were bears, long horn sheep, deer and chipmunks. I would recommend this ride to anyone up for a little challenge but also looking for a sense of accomplishment. Well done Ben

Ben was great. He offered a flexible service to allow us to make our own itinerary and cycle independently. He kindly transported our main luggage and recommended places to stop/stay.
He was very prompt in all his communications and offered and excellent service. We have done many cycle tours and this was the most flexible and considerate bike hire we have experienced. Thanks
