Snowy Dog Sunday

First annual Snowy Dog Bike Ride February 16th 10am till 2pm at the South Canoe trails.
Biking is awesome and the weather and local trail conditions have come together to make a ride in the snow a reality. Come out from ten till two and try out the trails and enjoy events and activities in the snow. Even non-fat bikes can access the area and we’ll be based at the party pit. Prefer to snow shoe? Still come out as the conditions are prime for a snowshoe through the trees.

Tandem cycling along Silver Creek

The SCC was out this weekend on two wheels as usual but this ride was a little different. A few weeks ago Shona, from Scotland, reached out to us wondering about joining us for a road ride. We often get questions about road riding in this area from upcoming visitors but what made this one different was that Shona was also looking for a pilot.

She is training for the Ride the North in the Grampian Highlands of Scotland at the end of August. This ride is 180 miles over 2 days. Shona is raising money for Guide Dogs which is a charity close to her heart as she is visually impaired. She loves cycling and has a tandem bike to help her get out on the road.

Alan Journeau, a long time Director for the SCC, actually owns a tandem bike and offered to lend it out. The SCC also has an experienced pilot – Paul Skinner, Director of Road Riding for the SCC, so out they went on Saturday, 80km along Silver Creek […]

Skookum Youth Ride – Poker Ride This Tuesday

Skookum Youth Rides are getting back into high gear.

This Tuesday, Sept 28th, will be the Youth Poker Ride. It is kind of like orienteering – kids are broken into groups and they use a map to find 5 cards hidden along the trails. The cards are used to make a poker hand at the end, prizes for top hands!

Also stay tuned for details on the Fall Youth Race Series, beginning September 4th.

See you on the Trails!
