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.

Turkey, friends and mountain biking Lake Minnewanka, Banff

It was an awesome blue bird day in the Bow Valley; cool, but sunny, making for a great riding day. We headed out to Lake Minnewanka to ride the scenic singletrack trail which takes you along the Lake out towards the warden patrol cabin (32km return ride); just past Aylmer Pass (16km return ride). The trail is in great shape and the scenery is just stunning. One of my favourite rides to do in the fall; it’s quiet, tranquil and tourist free this time of year.
