Cycling the TCT in British Columbia
The TCT trail through British Columbia starts in Victoria, heads north up Vancouver Island and continues by ferry across to
Metro Vancouver.  From West Vancouver the route winds through North Van, Vancouver, Burnaby, Port Moody, Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Langley, Abbotsford, and Chilliwack. The route follows the Kettle Valley Railway through the Okanagan,  the Kootenays and into the Rocky Mountains through Banff and into Alberta.

The trail offers a variety of cycling experiences from paved roads and hard packed trails to mountain bike single tracks.

When is the trail not on land? When it crosses Burrard Inlet on the SeaBus !
