Calgary Day Trip Ideas

Hey guys......I'll be up in Calgary mid-August for a week for some work. Was thinking about riding up, but decided to rent a bike for a day or two.
I've found this place in downtown Calgary that seems legit to rent from:
http://www.allseasonmotorsports.ca
Any feedback on them?

Also, what should I do with one day to ride? Head north to Banff?

Cheers.
Alan

Haven't rented or heard anything negative about them.

I suggest the Bow Valley Parkway. Get to Cochrane head west on 1A to Canmore then west on Hwy1 to Banff stop if if you like then carry on just past Banff exit right off the highway onto the Bow Valley Parkway and enjoy. Johnson Canyon is a nice hike. You can head towards Lake Louise then Field in Yoho National Park and visit Takakkaw Falls. If you use the entire day it's completely doable.

There's a hostel in Lake Louise that serves a nice lunch. Post Hostel, 200 Pipestone, Lake Louise.

Or in Banff, the Bear Street Tavern for good wings & Pizza.

Another great day trip. Lots of scenery and curves.
Gas is a bit sparse on the 40
