Only a few months left and some local bikers will be taking the trip of a lifetime.

Two Wheel View's Badlands to Banff Bike Trip takes off later this year.

"We're going to be taking off on August the 3rd and the trip's going to be about 11 days," stated bike trip participant, Andrew Germaine.

The numbers of participants are up this year from 2016 with around 10 bikers.

Germaine mentioned to 99.5 Drum FM that they will be holding a few different fundraiser's to help cover some expenses.

"On Saturday June 17th, we're going to be doing an Freson Bros barbecue from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and then on June 21 we're going to be doing a bottle drive. We'll be coming around at about 6:30 p.m. to houses, so if anyone has any bottles to donate please feel free to donate to us," Germaine outlined.

"July 1st, we will also be doing a pulled pork barbecue from Bernie and the Boys. We'll be in front of the BCF."

Another local from the valley will be participating in a bike trip, but not the Badlands to Banff one.

"I'm going to be going on a trip in Quebec from Montreal to Quebec City. I actually don't know much about this trip, one of my friends said 'you're coming' and I said 'okay'," Matthew Doyle recalled.

"I went on the Badlands to Banff trip last year and it was a great experience. I honestly didn't want it to end ever and now I get to go to Quebec during Canada's 150. I get to go somewhere more east than Saskatchewan and I'm thinking this could be a great experience for me."

So, are you going to be doing some fundraising as well?

"To go to Quebec, it obviously costs a little more money because you have to get there first. We decided to team up with the Badlands to Banff team here in Drumheller to get a little bit of money ourselves. Working with the team will pay for probably half of our expenses and I get to meet all the people going on the Badlands to Banff trip," concluded Doyle.
