Who We Are
Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter.
~ John Muir
Who We Are
The idea of Wild Rose Adventures popped into our minds while we were on a bikepacking trip on a quiet Alberta back road in the summer of 2019. We were enthralled by the scenery around us and inspired by the thought that more people needed to experience these extraordinary spaces.
Coupled with a serious love of car camping, cooking delicious and nutritious foods outdoors, and the comforts that a vehicle can add to the outdoor living experience, the concept of Wild Rose Adventures was born.
As our main business - BikeBike Inc. celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2020, we're excited to bring our passion for Alberta's history and places, attention to detail, and desire to offer great customer service to a brand new project.
Where We Ride
John Muir's words go to the heart of what we offer: Van supported, small groups, off the beaten path cycling tours on quiet roads into the heart of some of Alberta's rugged, wild, and beautiful places. French composer Claude Debussy once said, “Music is the space between the notes" which goes to the heart of why we choose quieter roads: Appreciation of the beauty around us often requires a certain amount of emptiness.
Along with moving your camping gear for you, we prepare nourishing, delicious meals and snacks from local and seasonal ingredients as often as we can. We are what we eat and we are so blessed to be surrounded by passionate producers in Alberta. We'll visit local food producers on many of our tours, see and taste where our food comes from, and gain a deeper knowledge of Alberta's dedicated food producers.*
Accommodations are best described as "Rustic Comfy" camping: Front country camping with limited services that we supplement with creature comforts that elevate your camping experience into something that'll be a highlight of the tour.
*Not every trip includes producer visits.
