Obviously this route is a little short. You might want to find a finishing control somewhere slightly beyond Calgary. Or perhaps look for an out and back diversion somewhere on your route to make up the shortfall. Also, consider taking parallel alternate roads like Coldwater Road, the Bow Valley Parkway, and 1A from Canmore.
This is (more or less) Ken Bonner's Vancouver - Calgary (and Calgary - Vancouver) place-to-place records route - but I'm not sure that anyone has actually done this route as a brevet.
Additional from March 2007. Harold Bridge believes that Norm Brodie rode this 1000 "sometime in the eighties" and started from Tsawwassen to get the extra distance.
