Every winter, our spring to autumn wellness programs and mountain bike trails (obstacles / playparks / features) are reviewed and improved to keep the site exciting and challenging for our patrons. Our "snake and ladder" trail design concept and the various play parks strategically located on the 108-acre farm property offer many physical and mental challenges for cyclists of all levels, allowing improvement trough repetition and professional coaching. Our Merkaba nature therapy trail also keeps shapeshifting every year. Like nature, the Creative Wheel Centre is always redefining itself. Change is life!

Modeling safe and fun practice of the sport (P.A.R.A. model) and the practice of forest stewardship is an important part of our mission. We try to answer all requests within 24 hours. We are often in the forest coaching or maintaining trails. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
