Canmore Flurry Ride

I got a taste of Canmore Nordic center a couple weeks ago and it was a lot of fun. Winter in the mountain is getting close but with a little luck there will be a weekend or two left sans snow.

Plan is to hit the lower single track and work our way west to the edge of the park and try and catch all the single tracks in the area. Should come in around 15-20 km.

This will be moderate ride requiring good physical fitness and proper xc mountain bike or higher. If this is your first ride please sign up for one of the city rides first to get some time under your tires in a more controlled setting.

Equipment
- helmet
- mountain bike
- eye protection
- gloves
- water/food
- tools and spare parts.

Car pooling
Use the comments below to arrange car pooling but otherwise I'll see everyone at the trail head.

Alternatives.

If the weather/snow closes in then I'll move this in ride in town. An afternoon in Eastlands will likely be the agenda.

    This may be a little too late, but I am interested in going but Ive never been to the Nordic center. I could meet anybody looking for a ride at COP or PetroCan on #1.
