Meet the Club! Director at Large – Ben Davey

Meet Benny Davey! He’s a Director at Large for the SCC with his focus set on trail maintenance and development. His goal is to make Bellevue Valley safe and accessible to riders of all skill levels.

Name: Ben Davey
Position: Director at Large

I have lived in Sault Ste Marie my whole life. I am happiest when doing something in the great outdoors and hanging with my amazing wife Sarah and our Son Wesley. I work as an Account Manager for an industrial water management company.

Interests: Mountain Biking, split-boarding, Trail Building, kayaking, hiking or camping.

I got formally involved with the Sault Cycling Club because I want to continue to see the growth of cycling in our community.

I am hoping to work predominantly in trail maintenance and development. We have a great opportunity for growth of the trail systems in the area. I have a specific focus on the Bellevue trail system as I have been working and riding for many years. I would like to see the trails officially adopted by the cycling club so we can continue to improve access and safety for all users.

SCC Bottle Drive

The SCC needs your help!

Our goal for 2020 was to have all of the Hiawatha Highlands trails signed to ensure they were easy to navigate and safe for riders of all skill levels.

Due to covid-19 and not being able to run our annual trails fest event, memberships are at an all time low.

In order to finish signing the trails with “You Are Here” trail maps, we will be running various fundraisers!!

If you’d like to help out, please save your empties (beer, wine, liquor)! We’ll provide you will drop off location details in the next few weeks! 🙌🏻

Drop off date: Tuesday, September 15
Please bag and # how many empties are in each 😊

Name: Danielle Anstess
Position: Director at Large

I have been involved with the Sault Cycling Club for two years as a Director at Large.

I am a cycling advocate and I enjoy sharing my passion for bikes with anyone who will listen. I coach women of all ages and backgrounds at the Titty Tuesday mountain bike rides along with at the Copper Harbor women’s weekend. I recently became a women’s ambassador for Norco.

I ride my bike for transportation as well as for pleasure. Riding a bike has built both my confidence and fitness. I like to ride trail, gravel, and maybe even a little road to get somewhere.

I look forward to seeing you out there!

Trail Maintenance Day!

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: Saturday, August 1st ‬
‪TIME: ‬8 AM to 12 PM
WHERE: Work area is a walk in off the end of Fish Hatchery Road (head up the trail and the work will be taking place just past the start of Rabbit Run). 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 building a berm leading into 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!

Meet the Club – Communications Director, Cindy Pruce

Hi! I’m Cindy 🙂 I took over as the SCC’s Communications Director this past spring. I look forward to continually providing you with updates and information on what’s going on in our cycling community.

Born and raised in SSM, I moved away for a short period of time for my education returning in 2007. The Sault has everything an outdoor enthusiast could want within a short drive, so I knew I wouldn’t stay away long.

I work at our local utility, PUC Services Inc. as the Operations Assistant and am the chair of our Employees Association and Safety Awareness Team. I love organizing events and getting people involved.

I’m the mom of an amazing 2.5 year old girl and am working hard to share my passion of cycling with her. (She’s loving it so far!)

I started biking in my early twenties when I was looking for a new summer outdoor activity. Biking has made a big impact on my life and changed who I am for the better. It made me a more confident and strong person. I’ve met so many amazing people along the way that I never would have crossed paths with otherwise.

My favourite type of biking is Mountain biking! I love the thrill of going fast, winding through the trees along flow trails and riding downhill.

I joined the Sault Cycling Club Executive earlier this year. I’m excited to help spread my love for biking and get more people of all ages and skill levels out riding the trails! Not only is it fun, you get to explore the outdoors, it’s great exercise, good for your mental health and can lead to building confidence that you never knew you had.

See you on the trails! ❤️🙌🏻
