The Bow Valley Mountain Bike Alliance had another tremendously productive 2014 season thanks to all the great volunteers and sponsors. Stinky D is now open and Lake Minnewanaka Trail rehabilitation to damaged areas is complete. Read the full report by Doug.
If you haven’t heard or seen the images from the storm that has battered most of southern Alberta, including Calgary, Canmore, Moose Mountain and West Bragg Creek, then you must be living in a bubble. Over the last 48 hours many cities and towns across southern Alberta have declared a state of emergency and have evacuated areas in danger of being swept away by overflowing creeks and rivers.
Despite all the rain, there is plenty of great biking to be had in the Bow Valley as we head into June. Even though places like West Bragg Creek and Moose Mountain might be too muddy to ride after a downpour, all you need to do is look to Canmore and Banff to get out on your bike. For more info on trails best ridden after the rain has fallen, read on.
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.
