Group Road Rides are Back

April 13 Update:

So it looks like the weather will be lovely for a group road ride tomorrow (April 14). I suggest we meet at Skookum at 10, and leave by about 10:15. I will roll by the uptown Askews on the way down (around 9:55),  in case anyone wants to meet there, or in case they didn’t get this email in time. This will be a pretty casual ride, mostly for people to get to know one another.  I’m thinking out Silver Creek to the store, and maybe a loop of Yankee Flats if anyone is up for it.

Please feel free forward this message to other roadies that may not be part of the SCC, but please keep in mind that for insurance purposes, we ask that anyone joining us on a group ride have an active SCC membership.

WAIVER REQUIRED before participating. Please fill out the following form:


Thanks to Jim Maybee, we also have a club on Zwift (search for Shuswap Cycling Club). So far, we have not […]

Annual General Meeting

The SCC is having its 2022 Annual General Meeting on Thursday, November 24th, 7pm, at the Salmon Arm Recreation Centre – Room 1.

There will be an election for 5 incumbent Board of Director positions for a term of 2 years. We also have 2 vacancies on the Board of Directors that we are looking to fill.

Joining the Board is a great way to squeeze even more fun with biking. We meet casually about once a month and discuss interesting topics like planning trails, events, races like the Salty Dog, or winter grooming. Have a particular passion? This a great chance to bring it forward. Or simply join the conversation and pitch in where you can. You don’t have to be the town shredder or do century rides twice a day to contribute!

Please email us if you are interested, or would like to nominate someone for a position.

Aside from the election we will also be looking back at 2022 and taking a sneak peek and […]

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 […]

Winter grooming update and how to donate
