Trails in Manitoba are rarely compared to those in Fernie, Kelowna, or the North Shore of British Columbia, but when Russ Hillman and his son set out to build a trail, that’s exactly what they were hoping to accomplish. They wanted something to ride that was representative of their experiences on some of BC’s finest singletrack so that when it was time to road trip west, they would be confident on the bike no matter what they were riding. Now, after months of planning and work, Cindy Lou Who is ready to be ridden. The journey from start to now was not without its roadblocks. In 2022, the H ..read more

Winter is slowly but surely starting to wind down. And yes, we realize that we probably just jinxed it. But with spring around the corner, we’re running out of time to get some laps in on our fat bikes.

So if you’re looking for some great trails to ride before the snow is gone, or you’re hoping to try fat biking for the first time this winter, we have a few recommendations!

How to Prepare for Winter Cycling
Manitoba Mountain Bike Association Blog

But determining the proper attire can be such an anxiety-producing roadblock, and it’s stopped me from taking more than a few rides before. Internet searches ar ..read more
