Bring a lil'ripper or beginner rider on this skill building short loop. Starting at the parking lot ride around the gate and take the Mountain Road Trail. Cross the bridge and keep an eye out on the right for the Telephone Loop trail head. Take time to teach the young one about gear selection as you climb the double track of Telephone Loop. Peel off to the right onto Braggin Rights and enjoy the ups, but mostly downs of this intermediate trail. Anticipate some rocks, roots and uneven terrain as you eventually make your way to the last descend back to the main parking lot. Remember climbing riders have right of way! Once done stop in to our 22X Bragg Creek location to re-fuel and fill us in on how the ride went! Grab any pics of this ride? Tag us on Instgram @calgary_cycle and use the hashtag #bikesarefun

Braggin Rights

Great conditions considering the recent snow fall. Currently wet, muddy, snowy, icy, tacky, and dry. Totally doable on a skinny bike. Didn’t have to dismount once. Most of the snow and ice is on Braggin; very little on both sides of Merlin. Bring a change of clothes for the drive home. ????

Telephone East dry and clear today. Returned by Long Distance Reconnect and Telephone West all dry and clear, a great ride.

Few damp spots, usually in dips/low lying areas. Plenty of firm spots to avoid these sections without widening/damaging trail
