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.
A few months ago I reported on a new downhill trail, the first of its kind, being built in Banff National Park. Today I’m happy to share with you the progress the Bow Valley Mountain Bike Alliance (BVMBA) has made on the trail since work began in late June. I spent a few hours volunteering to help the trail builders move along and can’t believe the amount of work that has gone into building this sweet and very burly trail.
