The local MTB Club, The 670 Collective, have done an amazing job of building some new trails this summer. Some stacked loop trails off Rangers and Mystery Trails. They are a technically challening with some small drops, berms and a really nice flow. The weather is a little cooler in the hills and particularly in the trees so it is a perfect time to come out and try them or prepare for the next event - The Battle Creek Showdown, 29th August. www.670collective.ca
