This past weekend saw our second Trail Care Crew Workshop of the year take place in Chilliwack, BC with the Fraser Valley Mountain Bikers Association (FVMBA).  The workshop saw 12 eager participants with varying degrees of previous build experience attend and all were eager to learn and put in some great work using new techniques learned during the in-class portion.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of providing a Trail Building School to my local club, the Tri Cities Off Road Cycling Association (TORCA). More often than not, when working with clubs in Canada, I'm not often a local trail user to begin with, so It was nice to have some more local knowledge and context of what the club was looking to accomplish and how the trail project fit within the overall vision of the trail network.

This past week I had the pleasure to travel to Kouchibouguac National Park for their Fat Bike Week festivities. It was great to see the turnout for such a successful event, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and collaboration from the entire Park staff.

Kelowna might just be the spot you will want to live in 5 years. An incredible amount of riding is on tap in the area; from XC loops through incredible scenery to advanced technical trails that challenge every rider. Behind these trails stands Mountain Bikers of the Central Okanagan (MTBco), a group of dedicated volunteers who are set on building Kelowna into a true riding destination. With support from local landmanagers, a great canvas, and a strong trails organization, Kelowna (and West Kelowna) is sure to grow and thrive as a trail centre.

The Kootenay’s offers some of the best mountain biking in BC. With places like Nelson, Kaslo and Retallack to name a few, it is no surprise why many riders flock to the area on a regular basis to enjoy the great riding. Nestled among all those popular zones and ride destinations is the small town of New Denver and the riding there definitely lived up to the standard set for amazing Kootenay riding.

Wether you climb one of its many mountain peaks or just view the scenery from the townsite, it's likely you will leave with a heightened appreciation for the rocky mountains.
