Fat Bike with Mr. Bon Soo!

We’re going to Bon Soo again! There will be bikes, music and a bonfire.

On Sunday February 9, from noon to 3pm, the Sault Cycling Club will have fat bike trails at Bellevue Park.  Come out and try fat biking for the first time – demo bikes will be available.  If you have a fat bike, bring it out and try out our advanced trail.  It may not be wilderness, but we will have some fun features to challenge you!

There will be a number of events happening at Bellevue park on that day (e.g., polar bear swim, ATV rides).  It would be great to have 100+ fat bikers out shredding the trails and showing that cycling is a year round activity enjoyed by many (we’re not just a few crazy riders…there are hundreds of us!).

We will be looking for volunteers to help build the trails in the week leading up to Feb. 9.  This is a great opportunity to learn what it takes to establish a winter trail.  Watch this website and Facebook for details closer to the event.

Spread the word and help us promote the Sault as a year round cycling city!

 

Winter Trails Open House at the Sault Golf Club

This weekend, the Sault Golf Club will be celebrating the opening of a new set of trails in the east end, come out to Mulligans Irish Pub at 1804 Queen Street East, on Saturday January 11th from 11:00am-4pm and explore the new trails, plus participate in a time trial race starting from the pro-shop at 2pm.

As well, the first 36 fat bikers to show up will receive beacon front and rear lights. There will be some other prize opportunities throughout the day too!

Check out a map of the new trails here and remember to be respectful of the land owners and stay on the marked trails, shortcuts and new loops may damage the golf course underneath and have access to these trails restricted.

United Way Autumn Urban Trail Adventure

United Way Hub Trail Ride

Looking for hearty souls to brave the gales of November and join a guided ride around Sault Ste. Marie’s Hub Trail in support of the United Way. The Trail is a 22.5 kilometre, paved, non-motorized trail that circles the City. We will have groups to suit all speeds and enthusiasm levels.

Rides will depart from Outspoken Brewing (350 Queen St. East) at 2pm and should be finished between 4pm and 5pm. There will be a snack stop (included) approximately half-way around the trail. Following the ride enjoy a post-ride beverage (cash bar) and snacks (included) at Outspoken. The ride will proceed rain or shine (hopefully shine) though we’ll find some ways to keep you entertained at Outspoken if the weather is unbearable (not likely!!!).

Get your bike ready for one last ride as the season draws to a close…and of course, dress according to the weather. For more details, and to register, click the links below.

The ride fee covers snacks and a donation to support our local United Way (receipts will be provided for the donation portion).

Cyclocross Season is Here!

Once again the leaves are turning and things are getting a little cooler and a little muddier…sounds like cross season is here!

We have three races in our series this year…one on St. Josephs Island, one at Root River Golf Course and the final Halloween Cross at Crimson Ridge Golf Course.  Stay tuned for more details.

 

What a storm!

Hey friends! What a storm last night eh!? If you’re heading out for a ride at Hiawatha or anywhere really, PLEASE be very careful as there may be new washouts and hazards due to the extreme rain overnight. Some bridges have been affected. We haven’t been out to assess but have seen pictures and heard from others that some damage is out there. Please let us know if you find anything that should be addressed! Stay safe and have fun out there!!
