The changing colours of Banff
Cool, calm, and crisp weather of autumn make mountain biking in Banff exhilarating this time of year. The fall weather seems as if it is perfect for outdoor exercise of any type. Cycling in Banff is such a treat any time of year but my favorite time to hit the trails is right now September and October. The trees are displaying one of nature’s grandest colour displays by turning a gorgeous golden orange and I have about a one month window of opportunity to catch these images and smells for my memory to reflect upon in the cold winter days. A drive up Tunnel Mountain or around Minnewanka loop will certainly show you nature’s unique timing of changing colours. However, I do recommend stepping out of the car hoping on a bike and getting out feeling the seasons change up close. You won’t be disappointed and best of all it’s free!
