Learn to Ride the Skills Park
Being able to ride trail features like jumps, berms and rollers is a great skill to have when mountain biking anywhere, and gives you a great base for when you’re heading to bigger bike parks in places like Silver Star and Whistler. As more trails like Merlin View and 7-27 get built in the Calgary area, those skills are going to be more and more important to have.
In 2017, YYCMTB is offering the Bike Park Series at the Chestermere Family Bike Park.
What You Will Learn
