The volunteers who share their time, energy, and muscle are what make our community so amazing, thank you to all who toil behind the scenes!
Shout out to Roy Miller for organizing the Soft Taco Tuesday rides throughout the summer as well as for all of the hours put into maintaining the trails in Abbotsford. At Sumas, thanks go to Gary and Kerry who gave the Sauces and Peels a refresh getting them dialed for the rainy season.
Over at the Woodlot, there’s three new features on Hoots, thanks to Ryan D and Eugene – check out the test ride in action. There’s still some drainage and dirt work to finish up on the new exit, so please ride with care.
Also at the Woodlot, work has started to rebuild Gold and The Gate. Many thanks to Andrew and Gordon who have stepped up to take on these projects.
Many thanks to Gareth for his work to revitalize 2 Cents on Vedder and for leading a small but productive team for the recent trail day. These berms are mint!
Recent winds have blown down a number of trees throughout the Fraser Valley networks. Many thanks to those heading out with chainsaws or handsaws to keep the trails clear and safe. Shout out to Bryan K for clearing Dilemma and Kerry’d Away and to Bobby for clearing Time Killer. If you see a tree down, please report on Trailforks! Many of our trail networks are within forestry tenures and we work with the respective foresters; if you’re out on Bear or Red, The District of Mission also asks that we report downed trees to firstname.lastname@example.org. This allows them to salvage marketable wood where possible and to assist us with trees that pose a hazard (e.g. uprooted trees).
We are grateful to all of the many volunteers who care for our trails and our community. Thank you for all that you do. This is not an exhaustive list and we know there are many others helping out, thank you to each and every one of you!
