This is intended to be a leisurely cycle around the Glenmore Reservoir not a fast paced ride. If you've been thinking about getting back on your bike again, this is the perfect opportunity to ease into it.

The total distance is approximately 18km and will likely take us up to 1.5 hours to complete at a relaxed pace with opportunity for coffee/snack afterwards at the Railway Cafe.

Riders of all abilities on any style bike are more than welcome to register. The terrain is completely paved and almost entirely on bike paths with the exception of a few blocks along quiet neighbourhood streets. For the most part the grade is easy but there are a few short hills as well.

Newbies to the area are sure to enjoy the sites as we wind our way counter clockwise from Heritage Park, behind the Rockyview General Hospital (very nice lookout point here), over the Glenmore Dam, past Lakeview Golf Course, Earl Grey Golf Club and Calgary Canoe Club, through North Glenmore Park, the Weaslehead Nature Area, South Glenmore Park, past Glenmore Sailing School and Glenmore Landing before returning to the Railway Café where we can grab a refreshment or light snack together before heading home.
