    Bow valley PP vacation

    I am camping with the family at Bow Valley Provincial Park in July and was wondering if there are any scheduled rides in the area? Razors edge on bikepirate.com sounds like fun (and close to the campsite). The wife (not me). is a little nervous about me riding alone in bear country, so can you let me know if there are any group rides in the immediate area within a short bike ride from the park? Canmore is a little too far from camp. Thx.

    I don't think there will be scheduled group rides to razors, you might have more luck closer to the date. razors, prospector, prairie view/baldy are all fun.

    grab some bear spray and make lots of noise, you should be fine.

    1) you are fine riding solo in bear country, The drive to the trailheads scares me WAY more.

    2) "outside" in canmore has some group rides

    3) lots of traffic on weekends and weeknights on most of the other Kcountry rides, should be easy to tag along with someone

    just the drive on the transcanada, on a weekend, can be busy, with hurried, busy city people, rushing to relax.



    Also bears are NOT that scary.
