At the beginning of May I spent a couple of days with students from Thompson Rivers University who were participating in the Adventure Tourism Department's Trail Tourism Field School.

The energy and enthusiasm that we felt from the folks with the Avalon Mountain Bike Association was infectious. A relatively new organization, the club is currently beginning the process of managing the trail network in Pippy Park, a popular urban multi use within the city. The park contains a number of forest types, ponds, viewpoints, and fantastic rock, making for an excellent canvas to craft beginner friendly multi-use trail.

This past week, amid crisis and flooding in alberta, AJ and I visited the small valley town of Invermere, BC, just west of the Rockies. This visit was a follow up to last year's trail building school, with loftier goals: getting the larger community on board to support trail access in the region.
