Spin Sisters is proud to be associated with the Calgary Mountain Bike Alliance (CMBA), and the GBCTA (Greater Bragg Creek. These are local volunteer-based groups working to promote sustainable trails in Calgary and the surrounding area.
Trail maintenance days are usually sponsored 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 some of our favourite riding areas including Fish Creek & Bowmont Parks in Calgary, as well as in Bragg Creek area including Ridgeback and S.H.A.F.T. trails out at Station Flats / Ing's Mine in K-Country.
