Been having an active summer and want to cap it off properly? Then the Edmonton Mountain Bike Festival should be music to your ears! The inaugural event, hosted by Revolution Cycle, is coming this September, and you’ve got a lot to look forward to.
Running for three days straight (September 9th to 11th), EMBFest is a mixture of trail rides, concerts, hanging out, and learning what’s new in the industry! Explore a ‘Trail of Lights’ by yourself or with some pals, head to the EXPO area for lunch (and maybe even a beer), then check out the local live music showcase to cap the day off.
But, those are just the more straightforward options during the weekend. Those looking for a little more excitement can participate in (or simply watch) downhill big-wheeler races, check out some pros as they tackle the ‘House of Wheels Jump Jam’, or see some wacky events during the ‘Bike Rodeo’. Been in the mountain bike game for a while? There’s even a ‘show & shine’ event planned for those custom (and wildly expensive) bikes out there.
One thing’s for sure, the organizers are doing it big to kick things off! Here’s hoping this is the first of many festivals in the coming years.
When: September 9th to 11th, 2022
