Update: The clinic will be at held at the Sault Ste Marie Regional Conservation Authority’s Sugar Shack, 1100 5th Line East. Course will run from 10am-4pm.
On April 28th, 2018, staff from the International Mountain Bike Association Canada will be in town to deliver a Trail Assessment Clinic. The clinic is a great training opportunity for those interested in being a trail volunteer and helping with ongoing maintenance of the Sault’s trails.
The clinic will provide information on assessing fat-bike, gravel, hiking trails, mountain bike, off-road and multi-use trails. It includes analysis and learning on IMBA Canada’s Trail Assessment guidelines created with the Parks Canada Trail Rating and Assessment system. Participants will go through a trail assessment (trail tread, user experience, sustainability and recommendations)(given our lack of a spring I’m thinking that this may have to focus on fatbike or snowshoe trails!). The cost of the clinic is $45.
The Clinic is being offered in conjunction with the Trail Head North conference being held at the Water Tower Inn (April 26-27). For more information, or to register for the IMBA clinic or the conference go to www.trailheadnorth.com.
PS. Our very own Advocacy Director, Andre Riopel, is on the agenda to talk about his fat bike adventure to Moosonee.
