Spring Trail Update

Spring is rounding into form! Even though a lot of riders have been ripping all winter thanks to the stellar grooming, people are excited to put rubber to the trails.

The Rubberhead Trail Network is close to being snow free and we have been out clearing blowdown. There are several maintenance projects which need attention, if you would liketo help out please get in touch.

There are two new trails to complete this summer. Trail days will be organized once the PHO permits us to do so. 

The SCC is reminding everyone to be patient and be kind to the trails while dry out. It takes a lot of work to flatten out all the muddy ruts! If you are leaving ruts the thickness of your tires turn back or walk through the section. Ride through puddles, not around.

TrailForks is super helpful this time of year! Fill out a report after your ride so people can keep tabs on how things are shaping up.

SCC Hosts Sweetskills Clinic at Rubberhead

This past Friday, the SCC hosted the super talented, friendly, and fun coaches from Sweetskills for a ladies only clinic up at Rubberhead. The SCC supplied the shuttle drivers so the riders could concentrate on honing their positioning, cornering, and conquering those drops and rock gardens. There was a fun mix of abilities and the Sweetskills coaches were awesome at helping everyone learn something new. It was an amazing day for the riders and we want to thank all the participants and coaches from Sweetskills for coming. If you missed out on this one, and are interested in getting some instruction, let us know. If we get enough interest we would definitely do something like this again!
