Hi all, just a quick note to let you know about a Take A Kid Biking Day being held on July 21 by Banff National Park in concert with Castle Mountain Chalets.  The IMBA Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day isn't until October, but the Rockies can be a wee bit nippy by that time.  Plus, kids love biking, so might as well get them out in the fresh mountain air sooner than later, right?

Now that the animals are exiting two by two, we can get back to riding!

BikeFest | MEC

On June 16, Calgary's MEC BikeFest started under cloudy skies but finished in a blaze of sunshine!  The move to the Eau Claire area, sandwiched between downtown and Prince's Island Park along the Bow River, put the party squarely in the middle of the city.  There were food trucks and bands and some girls with hula hoops - it was awesome!

I was forwarded this email from Troy Delfs, a resident of Bragg Creek, just SW of Calgary. Troy, along with other members of the Greater Bragg Creek Trail Association [GBCTA], has been pouring his heart and soul into developing a trail system in Kananaskis Country in the West Bragg Creek area. In 2011 alone, 30 km of singletrack was developed and another 15 km of trail is slated to be built in 2012. Now, Spray Lakes Sawmills wants to log the forest, directly affecting many of the singletrack and XC ski trails in the area. Please read on to see what Troy has to say...

It's pretty rare that we see Vancouver-esque weather here in Calgary [LOL], but that's what we had today.  Regardless, folks had a good time at the 2011 MEC Bikefest.  The rain drove people to the shelter of the IMBA tent, where I held them in thrall with my tales of mountain bike trail advocacy.  Muahahahaha!  Thanks to everyone who came by to say hello and ask questions about IMBA and what we do.  Now, off to take a very hot shower and grab a pint...

Hi there!  This is my first blog post for IMBA Canada as Alberta Regional Coordinator.  I've been working for the CMBA for the last few years, and I'm thrilled to hook up with IMBA as well.  Tomorrow I'll be at the MEC BikeFest Calgary, selling a table full of IMBA goodies and talking to the many and varied citizens who stroll by.  Feel free to come on over and say hi!
