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 to Dave for taking on this role!

Winter grooming update & reminder
Groomers were out getting the upper trails cleaned up over the weekend. They ran the cutter drag up Gypsy Tears, which worked well to level the trail but didn’t do much for the icy bits. They also worked the road and all the upper trails: Mo Buddha, Factual Acts, Sin Caballos, both Triangles, X-cut and P2. They’re all in very good shape, but the lower trails (Climb trail, Flying Nun, PPT, etc.) are icy. Studs and low pressure keep it fun. Get out and enjoy some of the best riding this season!
