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.

The IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew (TCC) was excited to visit Fundy National Park park this year, as the Park's goal has long been to create a mountain bike destination with East Coast flair and fun!

Being in the Rocky Mountains really does humble ones perspective of landscape and scale, and our visit to Parks Canada’s Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks, proved this in spades.
