Itinerary:
Let's go mountain biking in Bragg Creek
Plan A is ranger summit to snakes and ladders, to ridgeback to bobcat to strange brew. You can look up this route on trail forks to see the distance and elevation gain, but with minimal breaks it takes about 3 hours
This loops is quite smooth an flowy, with a lot of climbing but nothing too technical.
Plan B is pneuma to race of spades, since this dries out faster. This loop includes more technical climbing and descending, but is a shorter total loop. All of the trail features on race of spades (wood things) can be skipped, so the trail can be ridden at a blue level of difficulty if those are avoided.
If possible, the group will carpool from Calgary, but otherwise we can all meet in Bragg Creek
It is very important that you have a working bike, as I may not have tools to fix your bike if it does have a problem.
Everyone should bring a basic repair kit which includes a spare tire, pump, alan key set etc. I will also have a shock pump and some other tools
Required Items to Bring:
Helmet, gloves, lots of water and food.

Recommended Items to Bring:
sunscreen and bugspray
