670 Collective and Southeast Alberta Biking
This was written by 670 Collective:
The 670 Collective Mountain Bike Club builds and maintains trails in the Southeast Corner of Alberta and if you think everything east of Calgary is flat, you are wrong!
Redcliff is a town just outside of Medicine Hat right on the Transcanada that overlooks the South Saskatchewan River. If you have ever wondered what it would be like to ride in the badlands like are found around Drumheller, this is your chance to do it!
If badlands aren’t your thing, or you find yourself in the area in the heat of summer, take a 40 minute drive southeast of Medicine Hat to the Cypress Hills.
The town of Elkwater is a great base for a day or more of riding, with direct trail access from the main campgrounds and lakefront. The 670 and Alberta Parks have built many trails in the last few years and still more are coming. There is everything from green, machine built loops in the Firerock area to black downhill only trails like Last Grizzly.
We also hold an annual bike race called the Battle Creek Showdown here that is well attended and an excellent festival style event.
The 670 Collective is working on getting full trail videos of each of our trails up over the next year, but there are quite a few on YouTube already that are linked to Trailforks too. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeJDrpnG55qI0q-FqGJX2LQ
Our major sponsors are both local bike shops, CyclePath and Gravity Sports, who are both found in Medicine Hat. And if you are looking for a great coffee or superb baking, check out The Station Coffee Company in Downtown Medicine Hat too. http://www.stationcoffeeco.ca/

Thanks for the great write up, 670! I’m sure this will help put Southeast Alberta on the national radar!
