Member Survey on Priorities
2017 was a great year for the Shuswap Cycling Club! Our membership jumped to more than 250 cycling enthusiasts of all interests. We are on track to do even better this year and want to focus our energy and resources on the areas our members care about most.
We are asking new and prospective members to complete a very quick (1-2 minute) survey. Your feedback will be valuable in helping the Club with project priorities.
If you aren’t a member yet, we have opened our 2018 registration, you can sign up on Zone4. Begin Survey
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!
Membership registration for the Shuswap Cycling Society is now live on Zone4.ca.
The Shuswap Cycling Society is the voice for cycling in the Shuswap. Our mandate is to promote cycling through advocacy and hosting or assisting with community cycling events. Our mandate also includes coordinating trail development and maintenance through partnership with the Trail Alliance and the CSRD.
Last year we had over 250 members. The more cycling enthusiasts we have on board, the greater affect our combined voice can have.
Child (5 and under) – free!
See you on the trails!
