Raising Little Rippers in the Bow Valley

If you have a little ripper of you own that you’d like to see biking the trails across the Bow Valley, below are Tanya Koob’s suggestions for first rides. Some of them are paved and serve to build endurance, while others offer an introduction to easy gravel, dirt, and single track riding.

Pemberton book launch a success!

For those that missed it, last night Tourism Pemberton presented Peter Oprsal’s Pemberton Valley Mountain Bike Trail Guide book launch party.The evening was well attended with over 50 community members from all walks of life stopping by to purchase the new book and to chat with the author. Riders, trail builders, retirees, business owners and Tourism Pemberton board members, were all in attendance. Thank you to organizer Tourism Pemberton, our host Pemberton Valley Lodge, and prize sponsors Bike Co and Whistler Bike Park.

Good times at Frozen Rodeo

Frigid temperatures and very little snow in Alberta this year has led to increased participation in riding FAT BIKES! These two wheeled steads with extremely wide tires and soft treads can be ridden at low pressures and handle the snow and ice extremely well, making riding in the winter a blast. They are catching on and with events like Frozen Rodeo, held this past weekend in West Bragg Creek, more riders are being introduced to the joys associated with straddling these beasts. Our BP contributors Alistair and Suz attended Frozen Rodeo this past Sunday to take in the festivities.
