Growing our Bike Parks

Anyone driving down Benchlands Trail recently may have noticed some of the equipment working in the bike park beside the road. One of 3 bike parks within Town these bike parks serve all riders from young ones just learning to ride a bike to the experienced rider. As the sport evolves and increases in popularity, so too must the facilities that serve it.

The re-design of the skills park was done by Gavin Connor of Hang-Time bike Parks Inc, along with Town of Canmore Parks crew. Gavin explained that now was a perfect time to upgrade current bike park, with the increasing popularity of biking every year Canmore has an opportunity to be a leader in providing high quality facilities to serve both locals and visitors alike. Riders can look forward to flowy progressive jump lines that suit different skill levels from intermediate to advanced riders.    This is a great step towards a diverse and ever improving cycling experience in Canmore.

Thanks Gavin and dedicated/passionate Parks staff from the Town for all of your hard work, we look forward to watching the progression.
