Your family may already be quite familiar with hiking many of my family’s favorite hiking trails. Add bikes in, though, and the trip takes on a whole different feeling. Hills suddenly become a lot more fun when you’re screaming down them and outings become a lot shorter, leaving more room for ice cream and playgrounds you find along the way. We discovered early on that my son could ride a lot farther than he could hike, and that our pedal-powered adventures would take us to locations rarely reached by a young child on foot. Many of our favorite trails are so much fun on bikes that we’ve stopped hiking them altogether, and we now look for ways to combine trails to lengthen our rides.
Spring is here! And with this wonderful season comes longer days, warmer weather and the beginning of the season for many area farmers’ markets. These markets provide shoppers with easy access to fresh seasonal produce, delicious baked goods, locally-made craft items and more.
Summer is almost here, and Canmore is a great location close to home for those May and June weekend escapes before the kids are officially out of school and on vacation.
