Lots of races across the country are being cancelled due to COVID-19

Here's one example.

Thanks. Too bad, thought this year would be different. I guess it makes sense.

Are there any Enduro races in Alberta this season that an intermediate rider (first time racing enduro) can sign up for?

Probably nothing planned right now with the outdoor gathering limit etc. Dont believe they did mooseduro last year but I could be wrong

Hey everyone, just moved to Calgary and I've always wanted to try MTB so I got a used Norco on Kijiji. I know literally no-one in this province so I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to show me the ropes, like how to find trails, trail etiquette, how not to die when going down a small hill, you know, the usual. I do have a car so I can drive within a few hours on a weekend or something whenever suites.

Welcome to MTB. If you can swing the cost Alberta 66 MTB has a beginner courses that sounds like it might be for you (either the Beginner Series ($250 for 4 sessions) or the Intro to MTB ($85 for 1/2 day) depending on your fitness/skill level). (Link: https://www.alberta66mtb.com/courses-1). I recently took a couple of their one night courses and found it progressed at a rate that allowed everyone to keep up, would highly recommend them.

As to finding trails - Trailforks.com is your best friend, look for green trails. Great places to start in Calgary would be Fish Creek, Bowmount, or Nose Hill. There is a bike park in fish creek by the water treatment plant (Link: https://goo.gl/maps/FyFN8TzmnGmMSCdPA) as well as B-Line Bike Park that are great for practicing skills on. There are also a couple pump tracks in town (South Glenmore, Lakeview, and one coming to Inglewood).

Sweet, I think I will try that beginner course, trailforks has a crapload of trails wow. Nosehill is fairly close so I might spend a day there. Thanks!

Or save your money, put it into gas to drive to all sorts of places where you will meet awesome people. You shouldn't have to pay for a "course" so learn to ride out here

CM!

The course could also be a way to meet people to ride with at your level.
