Biking Season


We have very distinct seasons in Calgary and you have to make the most of them. Winter is ski-ing, snowboarding, ice-climbing and any sport you can name to do with frozen water in it's various forms! Summer is sailing, kayaking and soccer...and biking of course! On all the pathways in Calgary the bikers, roller-bladers and runners are now out in force enjoying the warmth and the light of our longer evenings.
School is out for summer in a couple of weeks time and the kids only really want to be outside. We are really hoping that we have seen the last of the snow!...at least until late August or early September!

  5. Bicycles--yep we have lots out here too. I live up in the Pilchuck Tree farm and all the trails and roads are open to bikes--no motorized bikes--. they are open to hikers and horseback riders too. Mostly mountain bikes up here.

    What a nice blog you have. Thanks for visiting mine. MB
