    How tight is your time frame? Is Calgary your home base or is that your fly in departure point?

    Revelstoke is pretty much the half way mark and has awesome riding.

    Downtown Revy has some nice food stops as well.

    La Baguette

    Main Street Cafe

    There's also some nice trails in and around Salmon Arm.

    And if you aren't in a big rush, take the #1 through Cache Creek and then the #99 through Lillooet to Pemberton so you can ride trails in Pemberton, Whistler and Squamish on the way south to Vancouver on the Sea to Sky highway. And on the way to Pemberton, Joffre Lakes Park has a well worth it hike to the upper lake. Here's some Hwy 99 scenery

    Even though that northern loop is slower than the Coquihalla, it's slower because it's more interesting, not just because the traffic is horrible coming into Vancouver from the east on the #1. Of course if you hit it at the wrong time, the Sea to Sky from Whistler to Vancouver can be brought to a halt by one accident
