Mountain biking, like searching for Sasquatch, is an outdoor activity that often begets exciting stories but blurry photos. Create fast-moving memories with today's deal from Groupon: for $20, you get a full-day bike rental at Soul Ski & Bike in Banff (up to a $53 value).
The staff at Soul Ski & Bike fit frames and spout knowledge of local terrain to send riders cruising river pathways or bounding down rocky mountains. Bikers themselves, the owners are turf-savvy and stock hardtail- and full-suspension pedals to handle jagged landscape with the skill and grace of a classically trained billy goat. Rubber rolls across uneven dirt and down slopes with the Cannondale Trail 5, a mountain bike suitable for coasting the Spray River Loop or hitting Tunnel Mountain trails (a $42 value/day). The full-suspension Cannondale RZ One20 4 catapults across Bow Valley roads, using back-tire bounciness to pivot around boulders and breakdance in basins (a $53 value/day). All rentals include a helmet, lock, pump, and patch kit.
