Motorcycle Rides

Why North?

The Athabasca region is only a 90 minute ride from the city of Edmonton. The area offers rolling hills, scenic vistas, and low traffic paved highways along with enough gas stations and restaurants to keep bike and rider fuelled. Plan a day trip around one of our summer events, or meet up with the Hawg Flatts Motorcycle Association.

This summer is the perfect time to check out one of our top rides or discover the north on your own!
