Canoe Forest Products will be falling road right-of-way adjacent to the Lumpy Mtn Bike trail (next to the ‘gap jump’) which entails closing Lumpy this Thursday and Friday (May 3rd and 4th) and possibly Monday May 7th. Riders are asked to respect the closer from 6am to 3pm on these days. The closure will be taken down as soon as the works are complete. These works will not have any impact on the Salty Dog race or the high school XC at the end of May.
Effective immediately, Canoe Forest Products will be harvesting at approximately 4km on the 110.000 FSR. Harvesting will affect the following trails: Double D climb trail, Black Dog and Warrens Trail. Trail closure signs are posted at the bottom of Double D / Pig Landing, at the junction of Warrens and Double D and at the junction of Double D and the 110.000 FSR. Black Dog is closed at the start and at the junction of Warrens trail.
Harvesting is scheduled for the next few weeks. As the 110.000 FSR will become extremely busy with logging trucks Mon – Fri 4am – 6pm trail users are asked to avoid the Rubber head area during this time period.
Salty Street Fest is just around the corner and we need your help with some of the Club contributions. The Club is running the Bike Swap, Bike Valet, and BBQ.
Volunteers receive our eternal gratitude and free BBQ! Sign Up Spreadsheet
