ATB Financial Gran Fondo Highwood Pass


ATBFinancialTM_Logo Dec 07Nothing compares to the remote majesty of the Canadian Rockies.  Located SW of Calgary, the ATB Financial Gran Fondo Highwood Pass travels 135km through the heart of the Rockies to the summit of the highest paved road pass in Canada. You’re going to have a truly epic experience, passing through huge mountain ranges and sharing the scenery with wildlife like elk, deer, moose, big horn sheep, and possibly even bear during this wheeled trek.
