Trail and skills park wrapped up for 2017

2017 has been a busy and successful year for the Edson Cycling Association.  We have built 4 kilometers of trail, including the Root 66 and Ridge Rollers trails. We also installed boardwalks on wet sections of Spruce and Pine trails and we have started a by-pass of another wet section on Pine trail.  We did some prep work for phase one of the bike skills park.  We also ran weekly co-ed and women’s group rides.  All of this was thanks to our committed volunteers.    Although we are all volunteers, our board cannot do it alone.  Thank you to everyone who came out, whether it was once or weekly, we appreciate your help.

We had many aspirations of completing more work through October and early November. This included having our builder, Jay Hoots, come out to complete phase one of the bike park build.  However, the chilly and wet weather has put a damper on our plans.  Jay is excited to be coming in the spring, after road bans are lifted, to build phase one of the bike skills park.  We will be looking for many volunteers to help with the process.  Stay tuned for more details.  In the meantime, we are still looking for grant and sponsorship opportunities.  If you know of any, please contact us at edsoncycling@gmail.com

2017 trail building has begun!

Our weekly trail building nights have started up for this season!  Every Monday night at 7pm we meet at Willmore (check status on meeting location) for a few hours of fun and social trail building.  No experience is necessary, you just need to bring gloves and closed toes shoes. We are solely volunteer driven. If you can make it out for a night or two this year, that would be fantastic!

2016 trail building season wrapped up

Trail building for 2016 is officially wrapped up. We were hoping the recent warmer weather would thaw things out for a bit, but it's not looking that way. THANK YOU ALL VOLUNTEERS!!! These trails would not happen without you! This year we totaled almost 500 volunteer hours. We finished off the switchback on Raspberry Stinger, completed the Overflow trail, completed the sand hill bypass, and have a good start on the Ridge Roller trail.
