If you're looking for a great mid-sized training loop then try this on for size. Calgary bike legend Big E loves this to get the legs back into shape or when the kids are at school and he has some alone time. Get ready to climb but then open up on the descent. Nothing overly technical here just rocks roots and smiles to be had After your ride stop into our 22X Bragg Creek location and fill us in on trail conditions while you refuel. Grab any pic's along the ride? Tag us on Instagram @Calgary_Cycle and #bikesarefun

Note: this route is the same as the Southern Flow loop, just with a different start/finish point.

Snow too soft. Constant momentum interruptions by hikers or coming to a halt on 3/4 of the hills due to sinking or being pulled into ruts.

Best to stick to low elevations this week with the warmer temps.

Mama bear and cub seen by the switchbacks mid route. Non aggressive but right by the trail. Mama is big enough!

If you want a quieter ride at the weekend use the trails to the south of the carpark. Rangers Summit yesterday was dry and in good condition.
