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!

Anonymous Trail Lovers Donate a Day of Work on Shuswap Trails by 10 Rapattack Fire Fighters

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.

Active harvesting will occur this winter around the South Canoe trails, tentatively starting December 11th for about 4 weeks.
 
Harvesting near the trails will be at a blow-down salvage block at 4 km, which is where the access road into KC and Lumpy leaves the main East Canoe Creek FSR.
 
There will also be harvesting of a blow-down block just to the North of Mo Betta Mo Buddah.
 

Active work sites signs will be in place on the road and blocks and the public is asked not to enter these areas. Harvesting and log hauling will continue through to the end of January. 

Users of the parking lot at the bottom of South Canoe trails road system trails  and on the East Canoe Creek FSR should expect industrial logging traffic daily Monday – Friday from 4 am to 6 pm.  Anyone parking at the South Canoe parking lot should ensure they leave adequate space for logging trucks to stop and chain up during this period.

CANCELLED – Slammin’ Arm Cyclocross Race

 Unfortunately the weather has not cooperated. All the snow we received over the last 2 days will not make it feasible to layout a proper course for this weekends race. We have made the decision to cancel the race. 

The Bad:
Rather than re-schedule and risk a second snowfall we have made the extremely difficult call to cancel finals for this year. Overall series standings will be determined by those races that have already taken place.

The Good:
As a consolation, there will be an alternative cyclocross themed ride and potluck this Sunday in Kelowna for all who are able to attend. They will also be doing a simple bell ceremony for those who placed in top 3 in overall standings. Check out the Interior Cyclocross FB page for more details.
