Early spring saw the pedal to the floor for Trail Solutions on the left Coast. Trail Solutions fosters its relationships with the City of Toronto and the various user groups that contribute to enhancing the City’s offerings. Trail workshops in Crothers Woods continue while plans are in full swing for phase two of the Bayview Bike Park rehabilitation.

It seems that some of the ridership in and around Fundy National Park have been a bit keen to ride the new White Tail trail that was designed in August of last year. As it stands, it is only a design and has not seen the upgrades / reroutes necessary for the trail to be deemed suitable for multi-use. Until such time, White Tail will remain a hiking ONLY trail.

Next month, IMBA Canada will kick off a series of trail building workshops in Crothers Woods, and at the Bayview Bike Park. Ten workshops with the Toronto Region Conservation Authority are scheduled throughout 2012, and IMBA Canada staff will be participating, along with Sustainable Trails Ltd.

Attending groups include the Toronto Off-Road Cycling Association (TORBA), Youth Unlimited, Wild Betty's Cycling Club, and Evergreen Bike Works.

Stay tuned to the calendar for more information on the workshops, including who will be facilitating.

Arguably one of, if not the very first community bike park in Canada (if not North America), Sprockids Park is a testament to the amazing riding community that resides on the Sunshine Coast.

education

This past weekend saw Daniel Scott head back to central Ontario to teach a new group of students about the fundamentals of trail design. Over the course two days students were bombarded with as much information as possible whilst being quizzed repeatedly by our resident Trail Solutions staffer. Using a variety of slides, chalkboard drawings and anecdotal information, the class was prepared for a beautiful sunny afternoon of inclinometer work, flagging and assessment in the local green space, Ken Reid Conservation Area.

Greetings IMBA members. Hope everyone had a safe, fun-filled holidays and is settling into their respective winter activities while preparing for the snow to melt and trails to open once more. While waiting I thought I’d take some time to get you up to speed on all the work that IMBA Canada’s Trail Solutions program has had the privileged of being involved in through the seasons of 2011.

Masterplan

Wascana Provincial Recreation Site Trails Masterplan in Development
Regina, Saskatchewan

With the off-road handcycle trail project underway at the Wascana Provincial Recreation Site it became apparent to Parks that there was a lot more potential for trail recreation. As a result of IMBA Canada’s work (both with the Trail Care Crew and Trail Solutions) the Province requested that we be retained to expand on the handcycle trail plan and develop a full trails masterplan for the site.

Following the month of design work in Corner Brook, dialogue was initiated between various interested parties in western Newfoundland. The focus of much of these discussions was on expanding the trail offerings outside of the City and highlighting other terrain in the area.

For those who are familiar with Gros Morne National Park, it is one of the post card parks within Canada due to its dramatic landscapes complete with ocean shorelines, mountains and classic Newfoundland bog.

Wow, what a busy fall in the T-dot! I would not have suspected that 2011 would yield such great projects in the big city but it’s been awesome! Here is a breakdown of all the work that we’ve been involved in with the City of Toronto this fall:
