Kananaskis Outfitters now rents pedal-assist mountain bikes for use on approved trails!
Alberta Parks has launched a pilot program allowing pedal-assist e-bikes on designated pathways and trail networks until October 2020.
Officials with Alberta Parks say e-bikes won’t be allowed at the Canmore Nordic Centre, or more wilderness setting trails such as the 80-km High Rockies Trail that winds through Bow Valley Wildland, Spray Valley, and Peter Lougheed provincial parks as part of the pilot.
But, they say, e-bikes are permitted on several trails near Kananaskis Village, such as the 9.7-km paved Bill Milne Trail, 5.1-km Kovach Trail, 0.8-km Link connector, and first four kilometers of Ribbon Creek, as well as 4.2-km paved trail through Bow Valley Provincial Park.
“The feedback we’ve received so far has been quite positive from both local retailers and rental outfits, as well as from members of the public,” said Michael Roycroft, the manager responsible for specialized facilities and trails for Alberta Parks in K-Country.
Only pedal-assist bikes are permitted. No throttled e- bikes
Only some trails allow e-bikes. Check with your local shop or Visitor Information Center.
