Hey, I found a Garmin at moose mountain back in November, still trying to locate the owner. Rides are not linked to strava. If you k ow someone who lost one I really want to get it back. Didn't think to post here when I found it. Posted on local fb pages twice now.

Any chance was it an edge 25? It's the little square one. I lost one sometime last year, but honestly no clue where I lost it haha. Would be worth a shot seeing anyways! Haha

Any chance it was an etrec that had tracks on it for funky Buddha?

Not sure if it is similar to an inReach but in the settings you can goto 'owner info' as long as it has been setup, I have my name and number there on mine in case I ever lost it. Could also maybe send an email to Garmin and give them the s:n and see if they can contact the owner that way?

If it's an Edge 520 it might be mine.

Hi guys will be travelling to Calgary mid Oct this year, is it still suitable to ride or any spot worth visiting? Planned to visit Canmore as well.

Cheers

You never know. I've ridden dry, dusty trails in December and January, but we've also had blizzards in September. Hope for the best, plan for the worst. Ha ha

Calgary doesn't really have great mountain biking in the city limits, there are trails, but they aren't amazing.
As posted above October is a gamble. Expect cooler temperatures between -10c and +10c

Outside of the city:
Downhill trails
https://www.trailforks.com/region/moose-mountain/
Great Cross Country
https://www.trailforks.com/region/west-bragg-creek/
Epic mountain biking in the mountains
https://www.trailforks.com/trails/prairie-view/
Or check out razors edge if you are an advanced technical rider.

Lots of great riding in and around Calgary. The weather can be a gamble in October, but dress for the weather and you will have a blast. Lots of great trails in the city if you just want a quick lap. Paskapoo( Eastlands) tons of trails with lots of technical sections, mostly in the trees. Fish creek park in the south has a large variety of rolling trails, paved paths and some technical rooty trails on the west end of the park ( west of mcleod tr) nose hill park in the north has lots of trails mostly out on the open so can be ridiculously windy, but I've heard there are some jems to ride there. If you want to ride in the mountains 45min- hour to get to many other riding spots

Thanks for the info.
Hope I can still spend few days mountains nearby and Parks in town. Pack the riding kits and see.
How often does bear is spotted in local woods? Cool

Chances are you won't run into any bears, but they are definitely out there. I typically ride once or twice per week and I haven't seen any this year. Last year I saw some 2-3 times while riding throughout the summer.
