Also known as AB 742. The "back way" from Kananaskis Park to Canmore, AB. About 60km of well used gravel. Pretty busy with hikers/mountain bikers today.















The last few km down into Canmore is pretty steep, narrow and chewed up.



Probably my last ride in the mountains for this year. Off next week to Africa for a month of riding wink

I wish I could be 1/4 the rider this bike deserves.

I haven't had too many Beemers, I just don't have enough time.

Hi Marty!

You got the direction wrong on that one. I'm the jealous one. Two more years until retirement for me, then maybe I can take up this riding thing seriously.

Mike, for a guy who is still working you have done a great deal of riding and picture taking. Glad I got too follow you a couple of times.

Looks like a beautiful area to put a few miles/kilometers on the bike. Thanks for sharing the pics.
