Name: Dave Kochanowski
Position Title: Touring Director

I ventured into the bike world a few years ago as it fit well with a 2 child, 2 shift worker house. I found I could ride day or night, weekday or weekend, solo or not. The Sault offers many different types of riding right in our own backyard.

I joined the Sault Cycling Club Executive to gain a better understanding of cycling in our community and what the vision for the future was. I strongly believe that getting both the young and old involved in cycling will have a great positive impact on the individual and on our community.

I hope to share the touring world with people from all skill levels and help them enjoy it!

Signs are up!

➡️ 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!!

New Trail Alert!

Thanks to the hard work of some great volunteers this morning, a connector from Sesame Street to StickMan Drive is all set to ride on the Red Pine!

Thanks to the amazing crew: Peter, Al, Mike, Rick and Landyn!

You no longer have to ride the double track / ski trail to get there. Check it out and let us know what you think 🙌🏻😊

Signs will be coming in the near future.

Position: Fat Bike Director

A bit about myself: Born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie! I grew up playing team sports like hockey and soccer as kid and got into riding in my late teens. I enjoy riding all types of bikes. In the last few years I have developed an interest in competing in “Ultras” (really long bike races). I’ve raced in couple ultras in the UP, the Marji Gesik 100 mile and the Crusher 225 mile. One of these days I would like to tackle the Arrowhead 135, the Highland Trail 500, and the Tour Divide! I also have started up a cycling touring company, with a couple friends, called Red Pine Tours!

My Interests include riding bikes, hunting & fishing, playing shinny with the boys, and brewing beer!

I am a part of the cycling club because I want to grow and develop the sport in our community.

Cycling is a great way to explore the city, the woods, and the surrounding area. It allows you to view places that you’ve been before from a different perspective. When I’m out on my bike nothing else matters, I can escape from the natural day to day stresses and worries of everyday life…. it’s also a really fun time and it’s even better when you’re out with friends!
