Come celebrate the opening of a NEW trail at the Kicking Horse Bike Park
this coming Saturday, September 1st. The machinery and trail crew have been working hard on a new trail for next season; so hard that it will be ready for opening by next week! Also on Saturday the Kicking Horse Bike Park will be hosting a Toonie Race in conjunction with the Golden Cycling Club (you don’t have to be a member to race). Entry fee is $2 and the winner takes half of the entry fees, with the other half going to the Golden Cycling Club. You also need a lift ticket or season’s pass. Registration will take place in the Day Lodge from 1:30 until 3:00 on race day. After challenging your buddies, or yourself, there will be a barbeque and beers at the base.A quick update on the park
: Showdown has ridden in really well, giving us a good idea of what needs tweaking next year - the tables are good, but don’t hit them full speed. Lots of new wood has been popping up all over the place. There are some new features on the middle pitch of Road Runner, either to roll or gap. Pioneer has a sweet new technical wood section as well. After the upper rock slab, you are caught by a wood berm and then soon after hit a wood “sky-berm”. The Wood Chuck and Black Crowe are continuing the wood theme on Pioneer lower down with a spiral, down to wood berm and then into a wood step-up. The framing for this started this weekend and let’s hope it’s all decked and ready to roll for next weekend. While we’re on the subject of wood, A-Dog has flashed his creative side in the Alpine on Rock Garden. The wood/rock combos are super cool. There are wood ins to flat rock wall ride and back to wood lines, as well as a sweet wood/rock teeter-totter combo.
After September 3rd the Kicking Horse Bike Park is open Friday – Sunday until October 7th, 10:00 – 5:30
