We’ve entered the best month of the year (subjectively and objectively) and, as we countdown to Halloween, all of our Trail Builders are busy getting the trails ready for the rainy season, while completing their other cool projects and beginning annual trail assessments in preparation for 2020 trail work. October and November are busy months for trail builders. Keeping our trails safe, sustainable and fun is neverending work, luckily we love what we do!
You may have seen that the Trail Crew is currently focusing their work on Boundary, at the request of the Builder (Karen) they’ve been milling and prepping cedar for rebuilds and doing rock armouring and dirt work throughout the trails. They’ve also been fixing up some spots on Expresso, Ladies Only and Seventh Secret. And you probably know, they did an amazing job fixing up Imonator last month! Go ride it if you haven’t already; a good combination is Natural High to Lower Griffen to Imonator, then back up and do it again!
The builders and volunteers have been out in force, as usual, so thank you to everyone who came out for the trail days this month. And a big thank you to the sponsors for donating or hosting to make it all possible!
- Dempsey w/ MOSCAIC Homes (and a Tacofino food truck)
- Boogienights w/ Kona Bikes
- Dale’s / Dale’s Connector w/ NS Ride
- Dreamweaver w/ Arc’teryx
- Bridle Path w/ City Sports and Physiotherapy
- Pennzoil w/ Steed Cycles
From Fromme to Seymour, your work keeps the trails fun and safe for everyone.
Don’t forgot to help the builders out and clear some drains! If we all make it a tradition to clear at least one drain every ride, run or hike then the trails will stay fresh and fun throughout the Fall and Winter.
If you see any maintenance issues on the trails be sure to report it via Trailforks! It’s the best way to alert the builders of any work that needs to be done.
