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.
Spring has finally decided to show itself and the Shuswap Cycling Club is excited. After record membership numbers for 2017 we are looking forward to another great year and have some fun events happening in the next few weeks to help build the stoke.

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.
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!
