Update: We have suspended sales of Season's Passes to ensure we can accommodate those who have already signed up. If you are interested in purchasing a pass, please send us a message and we will put you on the waiting list. We will do our best to open up more spots as the season progresses.
For those who have already signed up, you have received an email laying out some changes to the program. We have postponed rides until the week of June 22nd and we are assigning pass holders to groups. These will be limited in size and we will be restricting members to one ride per week for the time being. IF you have a Season's Pass please check your email!
The YYCMTB Season's Pass program is back again for 2020. Ride with us as much as you want, and build some skills while you're at it!
What is the YYCMTB Season's Pass Program?
YYCMTB provides weekly rides from late May into September with a focus on mountain bike skill building in a group ride setting. Ride Guides will provide tips and skill demos to improve your riding, but it’s not as defined as a formal coaching session. The focus is on riding and having fun! Most rides will be in the evenings after work, but there are opportunities to go for more challenging rides on the weekends.
Rides will be organized by ability, not gender. We'll tackle trails in Fish Creek Provincial Park, West Bragg Creek, Station Flats, Moose Mountain, Prairie Mountain and more!
