May Newsletter

There’s a lot of things going on right now, and a lot stuff already in the books. Without further ado…

Bike Park Update

We’re nearly there.  After a great meeting with the City and the contractors, we have cleared the majority of the red tape regarding the Skills Park.  It’s now gong back tothe City for final signatures.  Watch for an official announcement about a Grand Opening in the next week or so.

K-Town Kamikaze

The Super-D is set for June 13th.  Will Mike succesfully defend his title?  Will Evan get tot he bottom without flatting?  Will the DH crew redeem themselves?  Show up and find out.  More details:  http://www.mtbco.ca/2010/05/20/k-town-kamikaze-june-13th

Toonie Rides

Yes, we have Toonie Rides starting up.  They’re not races, they’re rides.  Races are more expensive.  Every other Wednesday at Smith Creek, only $2.  You gotta be a member of an IMBA affiliated club like MTBco to participate, but that’s about all.

Oh, and a TREE told me that there might be some delicious prizes available.

Trail Days

So far we’ve had several really successful trail days put on by Union Cycle, Cyclepath, and Outbound Cycle.  The trails are looking awesome, expecially with the moist weather we’ve had.  Thanks to all of you for coming out and making that effort to buff up the neighborhood.  You’re making a difference.  Watch for the next trail day at Gillard in the next month.

Sasquatch Hunt

A smaller turnout led to a better chance at that frame this year.  40 riders braved some inclement weather to ride Powers and collect the best hand possible.   Good thing that chili was hot at the top, because it rained (I think it was trying to snow) a little.    Hey, we’re mountain bikers.  We can handle some weather, and really it hardly rained at all.  Another great day thanks to Dave and Glenn at Outbound.
