25 kids enjoyed a fun night of trail biking Tuesday night! Weather was perfect.
Middle group had 11 kids, 3 trained leaders and 3 parent helpers.
We rode up No Tears, Deer Trail and then had a super fun Slow Bike Race at Malibu Landing. Even had a heat for the adults. We then rode Troll Trail, did the connector back to Blizzard Hill and learned about 1 finger Braking before we attempted the punchy climb. We then enjoyed the curvy descent of Purple Pony Trail back to the parking lot.
The tots had about 10 kids! We worked on our level pedals, maneuvering our bikes, and the all-important tripod. Then we went for a rip up and down the no-tears trail, and there were no tears! Nice work to everyone, see you next week.

Skookum & Save On will be teaming up again this year to provide the South Canoe post trail work Bbq & Bevys.
Parking: if the South Canoe parking is full, out of consideration for the local residents park down below by the tennis courts and not on 10th st or 70th ave. Vehicles on the streets will towed.
Conditions are still less than ideal but that’s spring for you. Nice work everyone for getting out and working on tech riding those slippery roots and squirmy corners. Gotta keep up with those coastal riders!
Thanks to all the Skookum Youth Leaders and looking forward to a great year of youth rides.
Spring has officially arrived and while the trails are FINALLY clear of snow, they are also super muddy in spots. Check out the Trailforks Reports for the latest conditions, and after you shred, fill out your own report and help out others!
