Surrey Off Road Cycling Enthusiasts - ride, build, learn, preserve.
A respite from the rain greated over 20 racers at the Delta Watershed for Toonie race #1, March 12.
Brett layed out another excellent course through the challenging trails of the Shed. The 5km laps took riders over familiar trails and some not so familiar to spice up the race. The mud was relentless but didn't dampen the racers spirits in the least - I think they relished it! Thank you Rocky Cycle for sponsoring the day with some great swag. Lauralee took some fantastic photos which are up on the Flickr page HERE.
Toonie Race #2 is at South Surrey Bike Park for laps of the JunkYard Dog course on Sunday, April 2.
Shed Toonie racers on Sunday March 12, lets not forget we have to turn our clocks forward - so don't be late!
As you may have noticed, fallers have begun bringing down trees in the South Surrey Bike Park, and throughout the entire Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest, (SAUF) of which the SSBP is apart. Every 13 years the City of Surrey, with a group of professionals, assess every treed park to determine which trees pose a hazard to citizens, and which need to be removed to reduce the hazard. The assessment determined that 900 trees needed to be removed, 400 in the SSBP. Although this is saddening news, SORCE understands the need for the City of Surrey to mitigate risk. Rest assured, that almost all of these trees are completely dead without any foliage. We are working closely with the City to identify any trees we don't think should be removed, and have had success in lowering that number.
Please be aware of this work going on in the forest over March, and be respectful and careful around the workers doing their jobs. This fall, the City of Surrey will plant 1800 native species trees to replace the ones being removed. Thank you for your cooperation. Garvey Allisen.
Our crew at the Bike Show under the sails for the weekend, spreading the good word about trail advocacy, our Toonie series, Kids Race and the JunkYard Dog.
We had enough volunteers to refresh upper Dyn-o-mite Roll, repositioned a few more JYD posts, swept up the gravel by the picnic table and entrance, raked the trails of organic debris and consumed lots of coffee and Cobs treats to keep the team going.
Thank you all for a great first Trail Day of 2017.
The City of Surrey delivered a huge pile of our golden dirt for this weekends Trail Day.
Come out on Saturday, February 25 for 9am and give us a hand to move this colossus into the trails to repave our beloved flow trails. Coffee and treats to get you started.
The new SSBP signs have been hanging out in my house for some time, waiting for better weather to install. The map now includes the new JunkYard Dog post numbers, the Loop 'n Chute JYD extension, legend and logo updates, and layed over a high resolution satellite view of our park. There is a QR code on the sign to load directly to your mobile device. In the mean time, you can download the SSBP Map - January '17 by clicking HERE.
