2021 #RideCMBA Nosehill Medium Loop. Showcases more of Nosehills trails, with some of the better fast and flowy XC/DH sections. Climb Secret Policeman's Ball and traverse the fast XC trails ByPass and Gerry's Trails over to the super fun MacEwan DH trail. Then Climb back to Gerry's Trail via MacEwan Hollow climb, Out and Down, & Gerry's Shortcut. Take Gerry's back, which is super fast in this direction to Surfing the Tree's, which is tight, twisty descent (keep your speed under control) to Surfing on a Rocket, which a bomber trail, where you can let go of the brakes. Lastly hook onto Follow the Fence, and turn on the afterburners, as the faster you go on this flowy section the better. Be careful on Follow the Fence when it crosses the two drainages, as these corners sweep down steeply and can be loose and it is possible to wash out if your front tire if your not paying attention. Enjoy!

average Intermediate (blue) trail - definitely NOT black if incorrectly labeled as such.
