Skookum Youth Ride Team Results

Beautiful evening and great turnout for the third race in the Skookum Youth Race Series. This one was the team event where kids partnered up and took turns completing as many laps as they could over 45min. Tremendous enthusiasm from all the kids cheering on their teammates and great effort all around as usual.

Looking forward to the last race of the season, the prestigious DH! Have a rip down Flying Nun and then stick around for a BBQ to celebrate a great season of riding.

Here are the results for the Team/Enduro race. They are divided into the various combos of rider categories and the loop length they rode: Category 1 were teams with riders in group A and B that rode the long and short loop. Category 2 were riders in Group A and C that rode the long and short loops, and Category 3 were the A and B riders that both rode the long loop. The first rider in the team name completed the odd numbered laps and the second rider did the even numbered laps.

Skookum Youth Race – XC Results

Another great night of mountain biking at Tuesday’s XC Race!

Kids were divided into categories and did a mass start loop starting at the party pit. The C category hit the Troll Bridge to Blizzard Hill, then half-way down PPT and back up the Climb Trail. The B category did the same loop but went up to the top of Banjoo first. The A category went even farther and added KC Connector, a short road climb, and Paranoia Right to the loop.

There were a few wrong turns and a couple small mechanicals, but all the racers demonstrated awesome effort and sportsmanship, helping others along the way. Great to see them all sprinting to the finish line!

Congrats to the stage winners Ella in category A, Reese in category B, and Nicole for category C!

Here are the full results:

Racer name Category Finish time Difference Place
Ella A 18:00.5 1
Trent A 20:10.3 2:9.8 2
Marika A 20:16.5 2:16.01 3

Skookum Youth Ride – Poker Ride This Tuesday

Skookum Youth Rides are getting back into high gear.

This Tuesday, Sept 28th, will be the Youth Poker Ride. It is kind of like orienteering – kids are broken into groups and they use a map to find 5 cards hidden along the trails. The cards are used to make a poker hand at the end, prizes for top hands!

Also stay tuned for details on the Fall Youth Race Series, beginning September 4th.

See you on the Trails!

Main Park Area Upgrade for Rubberhead

Exciting things happening at the Rubberhead this summer! The Shuswap Cycling Club and our good friends at Rec Sites and Trails BC have finalized a partnership agreement.

This means good things for our trails! The SCC will be able to be more proactive about building and maintaining trails in Rubberhead. Stay tuned for updates on trail work, but in the meantime if you want to be involved, come out to the Every Other Monday Rubberhead Trail Nights.

We have also been treated to a facelift of the main trailhead on the 110 FSR, including an upgraded parking area, sign, sweet map, and washroom.

Looking forward to more great improvements on Rubberhead in the coming months and years!

Logging on the Traverse near switchbacks

Starting June 27,  Canoe Forest Products will be conducting harvesting operations at the top of the Sicamous Switch Backs on the Larch Hills Traverse from Mon – Fri from 4am to 5pm daily.

CSRD Building New Bike Path

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District will receive $784,077 for construction of a new parallel bike path along Salmon River Rd.

The initiative is funded through a Provincial program called BikeBC. The path will not extend the entirety of the road, but is nonetheless a welcome addition for roadies and all cyclists in the area. Salmon River Rd is a beautiful place to ride bikes but is twisty, busy and the pavement can be a bit crusty.
