Winter?  What winter?  It seems like El Nino has brought the cyclists of the valley an early spring this year.  Record warm temperatures means little to no snow on the lower mountain, and I know that many of you are not only riding, but working on the trails too.

After an incredibly busy and successful 2009, it’s now time to turn our attention towards 2010.  Without further ado, here’s what’s coming down the pipe with the MTBco.

Annual General Meeting

The A.G.M. is set for:

Tuesday, February 23rd
7:30PM to 9:30PM
Kinsmen Field House

That’s the usual place we have the annual meeting, and if you don’t know where it is, here’s a handy map for you.

Map to the MTBco AGM

We’re looking for some new blood to fill the ranks of the club executive this year.  Please consider joining us this year.  We are looking for people with accounting skills, grant writing experience, corporate fund raising, maybe an event co-ordinator, and some generally well organized and motivated people to help spread the load.


Join UsJust so you don’t forget, your annual membership expires on March 1st.  Luckily, we have an easy way for you to renew on our website.

Join Us

Of course, we’ll also be accepting membership dues at the AGM, so feel free to bring your chequebook along.


One of our goals this year is to produce an updated and more accurate map of the trails. Taking inventory of the massive amount of trails in the area is a huge undertaking.  With the advent of inexpensive GPS technology, many more of you likely have data on the trails.  If you feel like sharing, feel free to email your tracks to:  [email protected].


Section 57 Application

What is a Section 57?  Well, it’s the part of the BC legal code that gives us rights to ride and maintain trails, and Justin has put a ton of work into getting our first application in to secure access to the Gillard area.  Not much to report, but we though this was a good time to let you all know that process has begun.  As soon as we know more about the status of the application, we’ll let you all know.

Bike Park

Kelowna Bike ParkNot a lot to report here.  The park is still technically under construction.  Rob would like to remind you all that it’s currently a construction zone and that it’s off limits.  Besides, if you ride it when it’s wet it will just increase the work load in the spring.  As soon as we get word from the contractor about when work is resuming, we’ll forward the info to all of you so that we can finish the park off.
