Depending on your pace, six weeks could also get you from Vancouver to Chicago, either on the Northern Tier Route or cycle the Trans Canada (BC highways 7 and 1) towards Banff and then connect with the Great Parks North route to the NT.

...go to Ottawa, ON on the Trans Canada Trail (300 miles)...and finish with the Trans Canada Trail again that will take us to Vancouver (720 miles)...
The Trans Canada Trail is more concept than reality at this point, as there are still many sections that need to be built. Before committing yourself to any of its routing, make sure you do your research. http://tctrail.ca/explore-the-trail/ Just looking at the map provided indicates quite a bit of unfinished routing between Jasper and Vancouver.
Don't worry about the bears. You-tube search "moose tramplings".
There is Holtville and the Imperial Valley and Ocatillo,CA and 8 from there to hysteric highway 80.
