    Just moved to Calgary

    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Dan and I just landed a job in Calgary at a Digital Marketing agency. I moved from Toronto and have 0 knowledge of the Calgary area. Is there any XC trails close by the Bridgeland area? I have rode to Nosehill and that's about it. I don't have a car so if there are great trails just outside of Calgary I would appreciate someone who can bum a ride!

    Again, I have no knowledge of the area and I've only been living in Calgary for 2 weeks so any information is appreciated!

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the information! I haven't heard of bike pirate before but I will check their site out! Fish creeks a bit of a bike ride to get to but maybe I'll try it this weekend if the weathers nice

    Looking for in town fun try starting at nose hill and then make your way to Bowmont park, ride though Bowness over to Eastlands a few laps around there then head back up. I can usually put together a good 2 to 3 hour ride around town from my house and not ride too much road, coming from the top of Edworthy Park.

    There is also Tuscany hill - 12 mile coulée trails. And there is a bunch of stuff by Stoney trail bridge you can get to though the trailer park at the edge of Bowness. I have ridden that stuff once or twice but not too much, so I would get lost in there riding by myself.

    There is also a few meet up groups in town that you can join to meet people and ride with on weekends.
