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...

Alberta | BikeFest | Calgary | MEC

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...
