Fernie Junior Rippers

Have you heard of the Fernie Junior Rippers? You may have seen the signs around town, on the trails, with little animal silhouettes. This is a brilliant new (I think it’s new) summer mountain bike challenge for kids. There’s a map, found in the Summer Fernie Fix edition or online, of all the spots you need to get to, and once you do you pick up a Fernie Junior Ripper badge at one of the local bike shops. I love the idea. My kids have done 5 out of 7 of the checkpoints in their age range and each of them loved finding the signs, the mountain bike experiences and going to pick up their prize.

And who doesn’t love a little scavenger hunt, especially when you can do it on a bike?!
