Steinbach, Manitoba, is an unlikely place to find mountain bike trails. The historically Mennonite farming community has little in the way of elevation. However, what they lack in opportunities for new trails, they make up for in determination from a core group of local trail advocates.

We have now added IMBA Canada specific FAQs for the new bike theft/all risk insurance program offered by Oasis, called Pedal Power. IMBA Canada supporters and members of IMBA-affiliate clubs qualify for the discounted rates, while individual IMBA Members are eligible for competition coverage.

Over the wet West Coast winter I sat down with 65 applications, a 2012 calendar, and a large map of Canada and started plotting out the 2012 Trail Care Crew schedule.

We've all been there: riding on a great trail system for the first time – its got great flow, sweet technical sections, and you're having a blast.

But where the heck are you? Do you go right, or left at that fork ahead?

Signage (or lack-thereof) can make or break a ride.

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.

ep·ic adj \ˈe-pik\ : extending beyond the usual or ordinary especially in size or scope.

One word to describe the 2011 Trail Care Crew season; epic. Thirty two official visits, 9 provinces, 290 days on the road and over 50,000 kms travelled. We drove through snowstorms, a hurricane, a tropical storm and endured a heatwave. We started the season digging into frozen ground, we finished the season in a wind storm.

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.
