Year after year, Calgary has proven to be one of the most popular spots on the schedule. The area has a super active population, the camp benefits from solid on-site support, and the word of mouth that's stemmed from learning all kinds of mountain bike skills has been simply amazing.
We start all our camp mornings at Easter Seals Camp Horizon in Bragg Creek. There we take care of our sign in and demo activities, run our morning skill development sessions, have lunch, and then head out for afternoon rides on the trails just nearby.
Cross-country options include Riverview, Pneuma, Moose Packers — Ridgeback and Powder Face — Prairie Link. Downhill options, which we'll shuttle, include Brakeless, Toothless, Race of Spades, T-Dub, Jean Guy on the Rocks, and Billy Dog.
Thanks to the Moose Mountain Bike Trail Society and the Calgary Mountain Bike Alliance, the trails are continuously updated and maintained. Pneuma and Ridgeback are two fairly new trails on the XC front, and the DH trails have some improved berms, jumps and technical trail features.
This year we’re offering a one-day camp on Friday, June 9, followed by a weekend camp on June 10-11. Participants from both camps are invited to The Cyclepath North in Calgary on Friday evening for maintenance clinics, bike set up opportunities, shopping, socializing, snacks, drinks and more.
