The longest cycle path in the world!
After 25 years of work Canada has inaugurated the Great Trail: a cycle route of 22,700 km between cities and beautiful natural landscapes.
The project of the cycle track started in 1992 with the creation of the non-profit Trans Canada Trail, which has since been working with government agencies, corporate sponsors and foundations that have funded the work, and are committed to trace the pavement, converting much of the old disused railway lines in viable paths from the two wheels. And not just because that what has been called the highway of the bikes will be conquered by skaters and roller skating, horseback riding and skiing.
the Great Trail allows to travel 'coast to coast' on a path that will connect to each other well 15,000 Canadian locations. It starts from Kilometer Zero, located in Newfoundland, it goes to the west and to the great Nordverso British Columbia passing by lakes, mountains, wilderness areas and quaint towns. They will touch remote places like Inuik in the Northern territories, but also cities like Vancouver, Ottawa and Montreal.
