February Newsletter

Meet our new president, David Major

First, we want to say a huge THANK YOU to Adrian Bostock for his leadership and valuable input as club president over the last few years. We’re glad you’re staying with us as a director!

David has been on the Board since 2018 but has been working on the SCC’s website, making maps, processing memberships, and handling communications since 2013. He’s a mountain biker at heart and loves all the natural and technical or fast singletracks around the Shuswap. He first started riding trails in the Carmi area in Pentiction, where he grew up, and now his favourite loop is to wind up the Rubberhead climb trail, over to the Ida View trail that wanders through some really nice forest to the top, then down Meatgrinder or Veggie Delight. An amazing loop that has a bit of everything, except crowds!

Dave also tries to use his bike for getting around. One of the things he loves about Salmon Arm is that whether he’s riding to work or running errands, he can always work in a little bit of trail.

Thanks again to Adrian for his many contributions, and […]

Spring Trail Update

Spring is rounding into form! Even though a lot of riders have been ripping all winter thanks to the stellar grooming, people are excited to put rubber to the trails.

The Rubberhead Trail Network is close to being snow free and we have been out clearing blowdown. There are several maintenance projects which need attention, if you would liketo help out please get in touch.

There are two new trails to complete this summer. Trail days will be organized once the PHO permits us to do so. 

The SCC is reminding everyone to be patient and be kind to the trails while dry out. It takes a lot of work to flatten out all the muddy ruts! If you are leaving ruts the thickness of your tires turn back or walk through the section. Ride through puddles, not around.

TrailForks is super helpful this time of year! Fill out a report after your ride so people can keep tabs on how things are shaping up.
