Re: Ride across Canada
OK, I'm not Canadian (I just wish I were) but I do live nearby, so take my comments for what they are worth.
If it were me, I would want to know when the foliage in eastern Canada was typically in its glory, figure out the days of travel from BC, and pick that as my start date from Vancouver. I would be nervous about early snow, so I might want to wait a year, start earlier and take more time crossing the country, so that by the time snow was a risk, I would already be near to the end of the trip.
Sounds like a fantastic ride. One disadvantage to riding west to east is that you would never be "riding off into the sunset", but you can't have it all!
