Biking in the Rockies?

Going to be in Banff, Jasper & Lake Louise area & interested in the possibility of renting bikes for an afternoon ride somewhere. Not looking for anything crazy challenging, just something different than hiking or driving. Are there any spot where there are bike paths?

There is a good article about mountain biking in Jasper National Park in this week's Fitzhugh (our local weekly paper): fitzhugh.ca/were-not-squamish-and-were-not-r…

Road biking here in Jasper is mainly done on the Icefields Parkway - a 60 km loop can be made to Athabasca Falls, via the parkway and 93A (the old parkway, now called Wabasso Road). The Mt. Edith Cavell road is also a popular cycle this summer, for those who want a good, uphill work-out. The number of cars going up the road are being limited due to parking lot construction, but there are no restrictions on cyclists, who are loving it! Cycling the Maligne Road is also popular.

There a number of great places you can rent bikes. In Banff there is Backtrax, Soul, Unlimited and Ski Big 3. In Lake Louise you can rent from Wilson Mountain Sports. All are good quality and similar in price.
