Group Rides

Saturday morning No Drop Group Mountain Bike Rides

  Big Hill Cycle is happy to bring Mountain Bike group rides to the Cochrane area for our clients and friends. Our rides will be geared towards Beginner/Intermediate riders capable of a 1–2-hour ride. These rides are "No Drop" rides which means we will never leave you behind and the only pressure on you to ride faster will come from within. Encouragement, knowledge sharing, fun and fitness are our goals for the ride. There is no payment needed at this time. 

Are you a new rider looking for someone to ride with, or don’t know the trails? This would be a ride for you.

Have you been riding for a while but feel your fitness and skills are lacking? Join us and feel your confidence grow.

Our rides will be adult coed, Beginner/Intermediate with ability to ride narrow trails with roots and rocks. Full Suspension Mountain bikes or Hardtail Mountain bikes will be needed on these rides. You will not need an expensive bike to participate. Your bike does need to be in good working condition but also be capable to ride in the mountains not just a dirt track. Not all Mountain Bikes are designed for the mountains. Examples of our rides would be Merlin View or Ranger summit in West Bragg.


We will offer Gravel, Kids, and Road rides in the future. With enough traffic and excitement, we hope to start our BHC Club Ride. What is the difference between a Club Ride and a Group ride you ask? A Club has a membership and fees as well as custom BHC Gear.

Group ride participants will receive 20% off parts, clothing and accessories on the day of the ride. Discounts can not be combined.

Riders will meet at Big Hill Cycle; we will leave the parking lot at 8:30 AM sharp. Waivers will need to be signed as well as carpool organization. Arrive early. It is a 45 min drive to trailhead, 1.5hr ride time, and back to the store by noon on average. Riders that want to meet at trailhead can email the shop.

Rides will be West Bragg, Kananaskis, and Canmore. Rider level and condition dependent.

Schedule: Weather dependent

Ride Schedule will be announced in the future. Please email [email protected] for more information.


Our group ride rules are simple.  The rules are there to ensure the safety and enjoyment of the riders in our group.  Please respect them.
