Rocky Mountain Section writes to Alberta Minister of Environment and Parks about changes to provincial parks system and cancellation of track-setting in 3 K-Country areas: 


After careful consideration of the COVID 19 situation, the Rocky Mountain Section Board has decided to cancel all Section trips, courses, camps and socials until at least June 15th. 

Given the strong recommendations from public health officials, our own risk assessment, and decisions by many other similar organizations, we believe this unusual step is the right one in light of all endeavours to contain the spread of the virus. 


Join us for incredible story of travel the world by bike told by Katrina Rosen. Honest and raw, describing Katrina’s search for forgiveness, acceptance, and change. It’s about rediscovering choice from the seat of a bicycle, exploring the world, and finding love by veering off the beaten path.

Come for a beer at Mineshaft Tavern at 7:00PM, presentation starts at 7:30PM in Origin at Spring Creek. We are looking forward to see you all there!
