Cycling the Rocky Mountain Legacy Trail – 2017 Edition

This year, we cycled the Rocky Mountain Legacy Trail from mid-May through mid-October, when the trail officially closed for the winter. Thanks to a wide range of extensions available on either end, our rides ranged from 53 to 86 km and included a good mix of destinations in both Canmore and Banff. Amazing scenery and minimal elevation change make this a "must ride" trail for those visiting Canmore/Banff during the riding season.

We opted to enjoy much of our time being out and about, hiking, biking and exploring in Canmore, Banff and Kananaskis Country. The obvious choice for this month's post was to showcase highlights from our empty nester trial period.

Getting caught in a thunderstorm while riding a bike is not a great situation!

But now that I've started the blogging part of the challenge I have a new theory: this month's theme celebrates the completion of …
