    Alberta here I come

    Hey there! I am moving to Cold Lake, AB in November from Ontario. I am trying to find good resources for mountain bike trails in the general area. Cold Lake is 3 hours Northeast of Edmonton for those who have not heard of it. Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
    Cheers,

    Seb

    Yeah, I'm in the CF. I'm being posted to Cold Lake and I want to find some good riding spots. You know of any good riding within driving distance perhaps?
    Cheers,

    I honestly don`t know of any trails . As Ferday said there`s lot`s of woods and he is right . The only problem is it is , you know "good old boy country" . There are lot`s of the stereotypical Albertan`s there , thus Quadding , horse back riding , hunting , and shooting anything that moves is kinda king there (not that there is anything wrong with those things)

    There has to be something though . In my times there I have seen some nice bikes around and with the base being there , I think quite a few of those guys and gals would ride .


    Good luck up there

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I will ask around on the base when I get up there. I am gonna buy a quad up there too so maybe i'll find some singletrack while ripping around on the quad. Any decent riding around Edmonton? Its only 3 hours away so not too bad for a weekend trip.
    Cheers,

    The Edmonton threads are some of the biggest threads in this section. There is tons of riding in the river valley.

    There's some riding in Cold Lake. The best spot would be Cold Lake Provincial Park right outside of town. This is pseudo-legitimate single track riding. There are other spots that are supposed to be bike trails (eg. African Lake Bike Trail), but the rednex on quads have ruined basically anything not inside the provincial park, even with the threat of fines from the local bylaw officers.
