Team Arc'teryx continue their improvements on Dreamweaver as part of TAP, now into year 4.
New Pennzoil is complete thanks to CLIF bar’s public trail day in April. This has been a two year project and great learning experience taken on by the Shore Corps. The DNV has designated the trail as bike only and will be the primary exit from the Dempsey area. Please do not ride down the climbing trail to the Braemar tennis courts as it is uphill only for bike traffic.
The Shore Corps was central to the creation of the New Pennzoil. Tom Hudson = dirt monger.
Great turn out on the April Trail day on Lower Oilcan. Picture on right is the loam bog hole that was shut down when the original line re-opened.
Metro has confirmed machine work to commence to realign Upper Dales (west entrance). A walk thru with contractor, Metro & NSMBA to determine scope prior to work start date June 8.
Metro will be upgrading the trail from Mushroom Lot to Mystery Creek this summer (TBD) and stock piling rock at future bridge site on Cabin Trail.
Metro staff will be upgrading the trail from Seymour Mountain Road up to bottom of CBC this fall (pinch flat alley). Work will involve replacement of collapsed drainage structures, ditching and re-surfacing. "On our way out we will incorporate some features into one side of the trail that might make the dull trip up or down more appealing to some." – Mike Mayers, LSCR Manager
If you want to contribute to the conversation, Metro can be reached at LSCR@metrovancouver.org.
Work is presently underway on Lower Dreamweaver to make improvements to encourage this as the preferred descent below Skid Road.

Some of our TAP builders on Fromme to sample the goods.
There is always plenty of work to take on and it’s also important our team of builder’s has the opportunity for some R & R. Our TAP Leader social outing in April started with a ride on Fromme, followed by a field trip to Central City Brewery & Distillery in Surrey. A big thanks to Central City Brewing, a TAP sponsor, for hosting our team outing for a tour of the Brewery & Distillery in Surrey with some sweet sampling to finish the day!
