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!

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.
