TNR – 09/07/19

Tonight is one of the rare occasions that Bob our trusty TNR leader will not be present. Let’s meet 6:15 at the DQ on Caribou. So grab your bike, helmet, water and put on some bug spray and lets enjoy some of the finest trails Wakamow offers.

Volunteers for trail maintenance

It is that time of the year where the trail side vegetation (grass and some branches) is needing to get trimmed back. This is a fantastic chance for everyone to pitch in and give a little time to ensure a weekend filled with fun! The club has the necessary trimmers and safety gear available for volunteers to use. As we are doing this on public lands Provincial Park) we also have volunteers liability insurance inplace so we need ALL club volunteers to complete and return the attached waiver. The waiver is used to identify to the insurer who is a club volunteer! Once we receive the completed waiver we will coordinate with the Park the volunteer trimming.

This waiver can be downloaded below, signed and returned via email.

2019 Buffalo Pounder

WOW another successful Buffalo Pounder is finished for another year. While the unsettled weather was taming the dust that we have become accustomed to riding, the trail conditions today were excellent. Thanks to all the club volunteers along with Parks staff for the trail maintenance before the race. Thanks Tim, Ray, Pierre, Matt and Vaughn (Parks)! Thank you DAne @ Western Cycle for supplying the great prizes for after the race!

Turnout for the race was great. Thank you everyone for coming out to play bikes on the wonderful trails in Buffalo Pound Provincial Park. As a club we get to enjoy these trails on a regular basis and it is great when everyone comes out to the race and enjoys these trails. Just remember this year none of the climbs were to the top of the valley. Thanks to Jocelyn for taking the great photos of today activities.

The kid race was alot of fun! Thanks to the club coaches and parents there are lots of kids who love riding trails. Below are the results from the kid race.

Registration reminder

Registration for the Buffalo Pounder closes tonight (June 20th) @ 11:59. You will be able to register Sunday morning but it will cost you $70. You can register online at https://ccnbikes.com/#!/events/2019-buffalo-pounder.

While the weather forecast going into the weekend is interfering with riding plans on Thursday and Friday. Saturday’s forecast shows reduced rain and Sunday will have improved. We are lucky that the Buffalo Pound trails are rideable shortly after a rain and the trails planned for the course are well drained. With the current forecast for Saturday to have minimal precipitation, trail conditions on Sunday should be fantastic and filled with lots of hero dirt.

The plan is to mark the course Saturday morning and once complete a message will be posted on the Moose Jaw Pavers facebook page.
