This ride is part of a series of rides around Calgary. All rides are mostly off-street/pathway and are of varying lengths/difficulty level to accomodate all of you that love adventures. The longer routes do require some level of route finding/navigating as Calgary does not yet have very good route finding system.
Other rides in the series - 
* Nosehill Up-And-Over
* Fish Creek Loop
* Bow River Explorer
* Pathway 100km
Distance: 75kms Difficulty Level: Medium-Hard
Ride Time: 3-5 hours
