Up The Elbow on Route 66

for a classic ride up the Elbow River on Highway 66 to Forget Me Not Pond -- before the Elbow Falls gate opens (winter road closure ends on May 15.) 

There will be three route options, with multiple riding groups for different levels. 


  • Allen Bill to Forget Me Not Pond (Chill Thrill) - 38 km, easy to intermediate distance and pace, 619 m of hill climbing.
  • Bragg to Forget-me-not (Steady Pacers & Hill Rollers ) -  60 km, intermediate distance, 835 m of hill climbing. Two groups of intermediate and advanced pace groups are available.
  • Bragg to Forget-me-not Plus (Hill Killers) - 85 km advanced distance and fast pace, 1,100 m of hill climbing.

Note, the 60 and 85 km route starts and finishes at Bragg Creek Provincial Park (see map, it's NOT at the community centre in town).

*** If a ride of your choice gets full, please add your name to the waitlist and we will post a sister ride of the same pace/distance a few days prior to the event
