Join us on Tuesday, February 9 at 8:00 pm to hear about the ATN Mountain Bike Master Plan. We’ll be interviewing Matt Hadley who was the project manager of the plan, along with Travis Anderson, Director Tourism and Community Development for the City of SSM to tell us how he thinks we can make the plan become a reality. Zoom meeting details are below!
Thursday, November 26 @ 7:00 pm
Thanks to many eager volunteers, a lot of great things have been going on this year!!! If you are interested in volunteering to help out this weekend, here are the details:
DATE: Sunday, November 1
TIME: 9 AM to 12 PM
WHERE: Work area is on the Crystal – Guillotine/Root’n, we will walk in from the Connor Road parking lot. If you’re unsure of where this is and want to help out, send us a message!
Our Trail Director (Peter Henry), will be on site coordinating things! We’ll be completing the new alignment and digging up/revegetating the old alignment. If you have a spade handy, bring one with you to help transplant some trees!
Social distancing rules will be followed during the work!
We all ride the trails for the same reasons. We share a passion for mountain biking and being in the outdoors.
As guests of the trails, we need to respect the work that has gone into building a positive relationship with the landowners who allow us the privilege of building and riding trails on their property. The Sault Cycling Club works with the landowners of the various properties at Hiawatha Highlands ensuring that the proper process of making upgrades to the trails is followed to allow for continued access and safety for users.
The below picture is an example of what NOT to do on the trails. A rider(s) took parts of an old bridge that had been removed and placed it over a downed tree. It was not secured or installed properly and posed a safety risk to other riders. We ask that you please do not take it upon yourself to make changes to the trails without approval.
*️⃣ THE GOOD NEWS IS, WE CAN GET APPROVAL FOR TRAIL UPGRADES!! *️⃣ We are always looking for ways to improve our trails! If you have an idea and want to help turn it into reality, contact Peter or another member of the SCC Executive to discuss it. A great example of this in action are the new Bert and Ernie sections connecting Sesame Street and Stickman Drive. Gord had an idea, we asked for landowner permission, and now we’re riding! 😃
If you’d like to get involved in trail maintenance or building, please reach out to our Trail Director, Peter Henry. Peter@saultcyclingclub.ca
➡️ Follow the PINK sign to the right for the new connector trail to Stickman Drive 🙌🏻
*️⃣ You can find this new trail at the end of Sesame Street on the Red Pine Trail (Red Loop) just before Cattle Run.
Thanks to everyone who made this a reality!! Great work!!
