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).

Bike Lanes at City Council on Monday

If you’ve been following our cities plans on bike lanes, you may have seen that the proposed lanes on Pine Street and Willow Ave have hit some friction and have been delayed. The issue will be brought up to City Council once more on Monday July 15th, at 4:30pm at City Hall, and some members of the club will be making a brief presentation on the issue. Please come out and show your support! These lanes can make cycling in our city much safer!

If you’d like to read more about why these lanes are so important, or how they can be a net improvement to the neighbourhood even to those who primarily drive, Check out Andre Riopel’s online petition at https://www.change.org/p/sault-ste-marie-city-council-support-bike-lanes-on-pine-and-willow where he both supports these lanes, and does a great job explaining the issues around them.
