Fatbiking the Goldilocks Loop
|These cozy rock seats offer a great view of the valley west.|
Once at the top the trails basically heads straight back down along Strange Brew and Boundary Trails. The trail back down was so much fun! Berms, switchbacks, jumps, and swooping singletrack take you all the way back to the parking lot. I wish I had brought some eyewear or goggles for the descent though since the cold temperatures werer causing my eyes to sting and water, hardly a bummer but noteworthy for next time out.

Once I was back down to the parking lot I ran into Brett and his buddy Chris who were also just finishing up a ride on Bragging Rights and Long Distance. It's obvious that the West Bragg Creek trails are THE place for great fatbiking close to Calgary - could it be our very own fatbike mecca?

(Looks like I placed 17th on the downhill segment, not bad considering I've never ridden that trail before and it was snow covered!)
