Some of the best trails in Edmonton's River Valley back to back to back. Fun and Flowy with some Fast sections and some Steep Punchy climbs.

Risky Business flows much better heading west, save for return trip. Use the double track (Capilano Access) to Sideline.

Once you get to Science Park have a break on the bench before dropping into your choice of Wally, Pot Luck or Pogey before blasting down Pipe Dream and on through Goldbar/Capilano, etc.
