Spring 2013 Newsletter

Where did Spring Go?

It’s been a little chilly lately, but I’m sure many of you have had a chance to ride some of the local trails, I know we have and it’s been great! I’ll keep this letter short and just let you know of some upcoming events that you may not have heard about.

We’ve put out Events poster online, it lists trail maintenance days, Toonie Ride schedule, and other upcoming events. You can download the events poster here.

Hillbilly Trail Day – Sunday April 21

For those of you not on Facebook, or who may not have seen our events poster in the local bike shops, there is a Hillbilly Trail Day this Sunday, April 21st starting at 10:00 am. The details can be found on this facebook events page : https://www.facebook.com/events/133383366849358/

As a side note, if you haven’t heard the news yet, P.A.C.E. was in Myra-Bellevue Mountain Park working on their adopted trail; Earring. It looks like they had a lot of fun, and got some great work done in the process. Way to go! https://www.facebook.com/groups/earringtrail/

Shifted – Movie Premier – Thursday April 25, 7PM
