(75 hour limit)

This route (or a reasonable facsimile) used to be done regularly, but it has been many years since anyone has attempted it.

* Going to the Banff Springs Hotel adds about 2 km each way beyond the town centre. Go right up to the big desk - it'll be fun. After Banff, Go east on #1 to Canmore, then east on #1A through Dead Man's Flats, Kananaskis to Ghost Lake. Ghost Lake is just a dot on the map that is at the right distance - I have no idea if there is anywhere to control at Ghost Lake. You might have to go 23 km further and finish in Cochran.

Getting Home: From Cochran it is then about 40 km to the Calgary Airport - 1A East for ~20 km, left on Stoney Trail (becomes Country Hills Blvd.) for ~18 km, right on Barlow Trail then Bob's your uncle.
