If you ride in Edmonton, you know about the river valley trails. They’re great for me, I ride all the time. But it’s easy to get in over your head sometimes when things get too technical, so I brought my girlfriend out to the trails at Chickakoo Lake last summer for something a little different where she could focus more on riding and not full-blown tech stuff.

It turned out to be a great way to get her riding more. We always enjoy the trip out, there’s lots of birds to see around the lakes, and it mixes things up for me versus always riding in the Valley or having to drive all the way out to Hinton or something.
