Almost There

The Fish Creek Mountain Bike Skills Park is almost complete. Starr Trail Solutions has been working hard to get it finished by the end of September, and it looks like they’re on track to do just that!

But First…

Lots of you have been riding the skills park after Starr has finished work for the day, which is okay. However, there are some rules that need to be followed:

Be Responsible

  • This is an unsupervised area.
  • Ride in this area at your own risk.
  • Do not walk or stand on features
  • To avoid damage to the park, do not use in wet conditions

Safety First

  • Helmets are mandatory. This is important. If you see somebody riding without a helmet in the park, gently remind them that they need to put one on.
  • Other protective gear is highly recommended.
  • Check the park for debris or hazards before using.
  • Use of the park in wet conditions increases your risk of injury, and seriously messes up the park.
  • Make sure you are visible to other riders at all times – don’t play hide and seek in the pump track.


  •  Be respectful & communicate with park users. Smiling lots ’cause you’re riding your bike is a good start.
  •  Know your limits and ride safely.
  •  Unauthorized jumps and features are prohibited and will be removed. If there’s something you think needs to be changed, let’s talk and see if we can make it happen.

In Case of Emergency, call “911”

  • Alberta Parks is not responsible for injury to users or for damage or theft of personal property.
  • Report Damage or Concerns to the Calgary Mountain Bike Alliance –

Here are a few pics from this morning:

    Do you know what time Starr typically starts and finishes each day? Don’t want to being my little guy and have him disappointed that he can’t ride if they are working.

      Starr is finished with the site, so you can go for a ride anytime. Don’t forget, helmets are mandatory in the skills park.

      Hi Alex, right now there are two pump tracks and a skills loop. We’re working on getting approval for jumps, but it will take a while…
