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.

Thank you – trail volunteers

Tuesday Night Ride

June 11, 2019

6:15 pm Start Time

Leaving from DQ on Caribou St W between 4th and 5th Avenue.

Another beautiful day for a bike ride. Expect a 90-minute ride on the river valley trails.

Here are a couple of typical trail riding mantras:

"Look where you want to go" is number one, "Over, Under, Through" is another.

As vegetation along the trails grows, we sometimes find ourselves in conflict.

Hand tools should be used to facilitate "Look where you want to go". If you can’t see the trail, you can’t see the obstacles.

"Over, Under, Through" should guide any further minimal trail maintenance decisions.

Complete an ABC-Quick Check of your bicycle.

Bring something to drink.

Wear a helmet.

Sunset is at 9:12pm

Civil Twilight ends at 9:57pm
