Long weekend, so no Trail Day this Monday. See you again in a few weeks and enjoy the long weekend!
The Shuswap Cycling Club in association with Skookum Cycle and Ski will be hosting trail nights on the Rubberhead trail system. These will run every other Monday starting April 16th. We will be meeting at the 2.5km parking lot on the 110 FSR at 6pm.
We will be focusing on opening the trails for the spring. Hand pruning and raking trails as well as tread repairs as needed. Some tools will be provided, but please bring any tools you have. Only people who have Basic Chainsaw Operators Training will be able to operate a chainsaw during these nights.
Double D is nearly complete. Only a few meters are left untread, and there a couple of places to tidy up.
Double D is already running great, connecting from the lower Climb Trail to provide a fun alternative to pedaling the road. The climbs have some challenging technical sections, tight switch-backs, and also some lengthy traverses and quick downs so you don’t burn out. Earn your turns!
After Double D, do a quick bike push up part of Rubberhead Middle, then traverse over to the 110 via Upper Rubberhead. From there it is a zoom up the road to get to Ravine. Watch for logging activity, but the upside is the road is in great shape right […]
Due to uncertain road conditions on Hwy 1, we have decided to cancel Sunday’s volunteer day at Rubberhead. Stay tuned for details on our next event, scheduled for the weekend of June 3-4.
