BOW VALLEY MOUNTAIN BIKE ALLIANCE

Playing in the dirt since 1993

 

ABOUT THE BOW VALLEY MOUNTAIN BIKE ALLIANCE

Mission - The Bow Valley Mountain Bike Alliance is a volunteer based group of trail enthusiasts committed to the future of mountain bike trail access in the Bow Valley and Banff National Park. We support mountain biking in a landscape struggling to balance the challenges of development, recreational needs and a healthy wildlife habitat.

Purpose – keep trail access to sustainable multi-user trails, promote socially and environmentally sound mountain biking practices and support future riding opportunities.

Business – work with the community, various stakeholder organizations and associations, land managers and politicians to foster mountain bike trail access; educate our peers and the public about our sport; encourage stewardship of the trails we use.

Values – access to healthy, sustainable trail systems based on principles of peer reviewed science, fairness and equality of opportunity.

SPRING 2020

The current plan is to continue on Star Wars in the Spring session. The goal is to keep Star Wars running fast, flowy, fun and sustainably built. Would also like to tweak ROTJ to make the climb a little easier for all users.
