Bike the Golf Course Loop

A bicycle ride around the golf course loop begins with an inspired start below the cascading waters of Bow Falls. From here, the route crosses just about every type of mountain scenery in only 5 km. Wave to golfers on the greens before rolling smoothly into the sun-dappled forest. The slopes of Mount Rundle and Tunnel Mountain watch over riders as the road turns and the Bow River suddenly appears. The chirping of grey jays in the woods is replaced by the chatter of dippers swooping along the bubbling edges of the Bow in a display of Mother Nature’s finest.
