Bottomlands Trail Day – Saturday September 9, 2017

Join us on Saturday September 9 and build some new trails in Bottomlands Park.

We can build up to 1,800 meters of trail between Telus Spark and the Winston Golf Club (formerly known as Calgary Elks)!


No experience at trail building is necessary!  There will be plenty of experienced and trained Crew Leaders in attendance who you will be grouped with.  They will teach and guide you while you craft that perfect single track trail.  We have plenty of pro-quality tools for everyone to use.  As trail building work can be energy consuming, do bring water plus a snack to eat while out on the trail.

Please meet us at 9:00 am – we will get everybody signed in, do a safety demonstration and get started shortly after.  The meeting spot is the grey marker in the picture – across the street from 935 Robert Rd NE.  There is plenty of parking on Robert Road NE.   Look for the orange CMBA tent at the meeting spot.

So come on out to do some trail building, meet some new people (and maybe old friends), have some fun, and help shape the trails that we all love to ride!  We will provide a BBQ at the end of the Trail Day (about 1:00 pm).  If you can join us, please register on Eventbrite

Please bring/wear the following (we will provide tools):

  • Good sturdy work boots or hiking boots (no sandals or open toe shoes!)
  • Work gloves
  • Eye protection (safety or sports sun glasses)
  • Jacket that is wet weather resistant
  • Long pants
  • Bug spray and sun screen
  • Water to drink and a snack to eat while out on the trail

If we need to cancel the Trail Day due to weather, we will post a notice on our website Friday night and notify everybody registered.
