Biking in Canmore

Heading out tonight for the PedalHeads group ride. Going to the Canmore Nordic Center. Here's what Tourism Canmore has to say:

Canmore Nordic Centre Mountain Biking Trails
Difficulty Rating: Light to Difficult
Distance: Over 60 km of trails.
Location: From Canmore, follow the signs from downtown.

"With the Bow River on one side and the jutting, snow-capped Canadian Rockies on the other, the Canmore Nordic Centre is the model venue for a World Cup cross-country event...Find seven more like this, and the World Cup would never have to go anywhere else."
-Velo News, August 14, 2000

It's also great fun for recreational riding.

Designed and developed for the cross-country ski and biathlon events of the 1988 Winter Olympic Games, the Canmore Nordic Centre offers you over 60 km of exhilarating trails, ranging from rolling doubletrack to plenty of steep and gnarly singletrack. A stop on the World Cup mountain bike circuit from 1998-2000, the Nordic Centre has challenged the world's best riders.

I'll let you know how it goes.

- Peace
