Two weeks ago we hosted our second of three integrated land manager training workshops sponsored by Shimano Canada in Calabogie, ON, which used to boast lift access downhill mountain biking until the mid 2000s.

Last weekend I had the pleasure of taking part in Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day spring edition at Hardwood Hills, ON in conjunction with the Canada Cup taking place that weekend. Even with some inclement weather it was clear to see the fun and stoke written on the kids faces!

Two weeks ago we hosted our first of three integrated land manager training workshops sponsored by Shimano Canada in Kelowna, BC. What followed were two days of workshops both in the classroom and in the field, but even more than the information gained were the fantastic connections made and conversations had between various different agencies and partners throughout the visit. The two-day workshop had 12 attendees from many different organizations represented. City of Kelowna, Rec. Sites and Trails BC, Big White and Parks Canada were all represented to name a few.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending MEC London’s Bikefest. It was a great gathering of local clubs and organizations all coming together to discuss all things bike related. From hands on workshops and flat tire changing contests, to all the organizations and groups on hand to talk about trails, programming and all things cycling related; there was a little something for everyone at this year’s event. MEC staff even had those covered that forgot it was Mother’s Day with complimentary flowers available to take home to mom!

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.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Northern Fat Bike Summit in Marquette, Michigan and enjoying a full weekend of nothing but fat tires and snowy trails.

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.
