The Moment – Movie Night with SCC

Join us for a movie night May 25th at the Salmar Classic for a screening of The Moment. We will have great door prizes and refreshments as you sit back and enjoy the biggest legends in mountain biking.

Tickets go on sale soon, stay tuned!

In the backwoods of British Columbia, Canada, three small but dedicated crews of adventure seekers were quietly changing the course of a sport and carving their paths in history. And it was all happening unbeknownst to each other, the cycling world, and ultimately, themselves. This film is the origin story of a small movement of mountain bikers and filmmakers who rose up, challenged the status quo, and turned the sport of cycling on its head. This is a story that has never been told, told by the people who lived it firsthand.

Bike Club Pres Stepping Down

All of us in the Shuswap Cycling Club want to thank Andreas Meerza for devoting many hours of volunteer time. Great job Andreas and we will see you on the trails!

Dear SCC Friends & Members,

It is with great regret that I need to inform you of my resignation from the Shuswap Cycle Club Executive.

My work schedule and family commitments have become such that I cannot continue to volunteer the time necessary to do my job on the board with the thoroughness I would like. I will be resigning effective March 5, 2018.

Thank you for the opportunity, and best wishes to you and the other members going forward.

Sincerely yours,

Andreas Meerza

Bike for Your Life and Beyond – A Community Conversation

Thursday 6:30 p.m. March 1, First United Church Hall, Salmon Arm

Join in conversation with recreational road cyclists who live here in the Shuswap – North Okanagan, described by Shuswap Tourism as a “pedal paradise”. We enjoy cycling adventures and quiet times rolling along scenic paved back roads on our bikes. Cycling provides us with rich experiences in observing, listening to and smelling nature especially here in this beautiful region we call home. 

Residents of the Shuswap – North Okanagan live in a “pedal paradise”. One of the ways local cyclists have shared their appreciation for local cycle touring has been to invite fellow cyclists from both near and far (since 1998) to participate in a community bike ride. The Salmon Arm Bike for Your Life Century Ride is 100% volunteer driven and requires ongoing replenishment of its volunteer pool in order to survive and thrive! 

At this community conversation we will reflect together on past experiences of the Salmon Arm Bike for Your Life Century Ride and discuss the shape that this event (or another like it) might take in the future.

Interested? Please register online here:

Fat biking in the news on CBC

Our favourite winter past time is in the news. In a new article on the CBC this week, staff from a few ski hills around the province talk about the rise in popularity of fat biking. 

As more and more 2-wheeled enthusiasts take up fat biking in the winter, resorts like Silver Star are providing some dedicated groomed goodness

But where there aren’t places like Silver Star with separate fat biking trails, overlap with our nordic skiing brothers and sisters can be an issue, with clubs struggling over access and insurance issues. 

We’ve gathered some best practices and tips on how to watch the weather and snow conditions to help you be a responsible fatty. Have a look at our Fat Biking Best Practices page and happy trails!

Trails in the Shuswap will get more love this year than usual. Anonymous trail lovers donated a their silent auction win from the Shuswap Trail party Friday night. They were the winning bidder on a full day of work by 10 Rapattack Fire Fighters, to be used for whatever. And what better use than building trail! We have seen these men and women in action and they know their trail building.

To whomever you are, cheers! Trail enthusiasts all over the Shuswap thank you.
