COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

TRAIL BUILDING

Spin Sisters is proud to be associated with the Calgary Mountain Bike Alliance (CMBA), a local group working to promote sustainable trails in the Calgary area.

CMBA sponsors trail maintenance days with local bike clubs to keep our existing trails in prime riding condition, and in cooperation with appropriate land management authorities, creates new trails to the best practices of modern sustainable trail design.

Spin Sisters have put in hundreds of accumulated hours of loving attention into singletrack trails in Fish Creek park, Bowmont Park, Ridgeback and S.H.A.F.T. trails out at Station Flats / Ing's Mine in K-Country.

The GBCTA are looking for volunteers to construct/maintain West Bragg Creek Trails. This is a great way to meet other trail users and give back to the trails we all use.
