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

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!

Trail Closure and Logging Traffic on Rubberhead

The top section of Upper Supermans at Rubberhead (the very top part that most people don’t ride) will be closed until approximately the end of November. Access is still possible from the 2nd to top entrance. Lichen traverse is also closed. The logging does not affect the trail, but they will be using the access road and have closed the road and trail as a safety precaution.

Canoe Forest Products have placed signs on the closed trails, and on the roads at the active sites. They ask the public to not enter these areas and respect the trail and road closures. 

Harvesting and log hauling will continue through to the end of November. Expect industrial logging traffic on the main FSR 110 road daily Monday – Friday from 4am to 6pm.
