Mountain Biking in Nova Scotia
The Gorge is a mountain bike park that is the creation of some of the most extreme riders in the Wolfville and Kentville areas. Leading the construction of trails in this park is the owner of Framebreak Bicycles. His preference for"sick" and "sweet" single-track has been fully indulged in The Gorge. Designed as a training ground for all levels of riders, the park features a broad range of technically and aerobically challenging terrain. The trail system is primarily single-track, with some connecting stretches on wider, grassy double-track trails. A ride through The Gorge is an intense experience, particularly when you find yourself following its creator through mazelike single-track, over log piles, down extreme drops, through rocky little stream beds, up treacherous banks and ledges, and across trails that teach you all there is to fear about off-camber riding. Of course, Brian is also the first person to tell you that you can ride anything, and if you can lure him out for a ride he'll show you that it can be done and encourage you to stretch your limits. Chances are good that you'll consider yourself a better rider at the end of the day.
