Have you ever asked yourself, where’s the best place to ride a Can-Am Spyder? We asked BRP employees across the world to tell us their favourites!
The Canadian West Coast and Alaska
“From Kelowna, British Columbia, to Anchorage, Alaska. We rode more than 10,000 km in 21 days! It was an incredible trip on three Spyders!” Josef Fürlinger (Austria)
Most motorcyclists would agree that riding from the Canadian West Coast to Alaska is the trip of a lifetime. Highway 97N toward Alaska is one of British Columbia’s most beautiful routes. This historic highway takes you through remote landscapes, past hot spring and mountains with limitless peaks.
The Swiss Alps
“The Swiss Alps! You’ll find superb mountain roads, breathtaking views and exceptional weather in the summer.” Ana-Maria Popa (Switzerland)
The Swiss Alps offer a succession of mythic passes with unbelievable roads. These passes, which mark the borders with neighbouring France and Italy, run alongside high-altitude lakes and valleys characteristic of Switzerland. Each bend offers a new view even more stunning than the last.
The Central United States
“The Badlands. Devils Tower. The Bighorn Mountains. The Needles Highway. Why? Because there’s nothing else like it. Honestly, there’s a surprise after every bend.” George Broughton (USA)
Several states in the Central US such as South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana and Utah have lots to offer Spyder riders. From soaring mountains to endless prairies, you’ll cross several national parks that offer astonishing, truly extraordinary views.
The Lower St. Lawrence and North Shore
“In Quebec, the Lower St. Lawrence and North Shore regions feature roads that are perfect for the Spyder. Highways 138 and 132 run alongside the St. Lawrence River and offer spectacular views.” Jean Guillemette (Canada)
In the Lower St. Lawrence region, it’s easy to mistake the river for the ocean, with magnificent country roads running right beside it. As for the North Shore, it boasts majestic landscapes and roads that seem to go on forever.
“One of the roads that most inspired me, and which I absolutely adored, is the highway between Tijuana and Ensenada. You have the mountains of Baja California on one side, and the Pacific Ocean on the other. The temperature is mild and the views are spectacular.” Carlos Luna Blanco (Mexico)
Baja California is the second-longest peninsula in the world, with more than 1,200 km of wild, majestic landscapes. Venture off the beaten path, and you’ll visit rustic villages nestled between towering mountains, with winding roads taking you along the edge of the Pacific Ocean.
The open road, quite simply
After discovering all of these fantastic destinations, we have one last opinion to share with you, since all Spyder riders have one thing in common: a passion for the open road.
“The best place to ride a Spyder is quite simply the open road. When you get right down to it, where you ride doesn’t really matter. If you have a Spyder RT, you’ll love riding it anywhere and everywhere. The important thing is to hit the road and enjoy the ride.” Joni Lauronen (Finland)
