Thursday Night Club Ride – August 19th

Join us for the weekly Thursday Night Ride. This week we are riding in Wakamow Valley. New ride leader this week as the other Rob is busy. So come out and enjoy an evening on the trails. This rainy weather will really help trail conditions on the ride. Grab you helmet, water and bike and see you there.

As we get later into the August the days are getting shorter and lights will start to be needed. There are lots of great headlight/taillight options at local bike shops. Ideally, you want to get something bright enough to see the trail. Night riding is so much fun!

Upcoming Rides – June 27th – July 1st

Below are the upcoming club rides. With the lessening of restrictions on our activities we are able to offer a limited number of “Try-it” spots on each ride. This is a great way for non-members to come and participate in a ride or two before joining. These spots can also be useful for any members to bring friends/family along for a club ride. To participate as a “Try-it” you simply need to complete the Non-member Waiver and return it to the Pavers 1 hour before the scheduled ride begins. Completed waivers can be emailed to the Pavers .

Buffalo Pound PP Trail Maintenance

Today the Moose Jaw Pavers started the trail maintenance to support the Parks ongoing work. Thanks to Tim, Ray Dave and Rob for coming out and getting a jump on the needed trimming. Club volunteers were able to trim the following:

  • Twister (upper and lower sections)
  • Junkyard
  • 1/4 Mile
  • Pick-up Sticks
  • Thank you Nature
  • Rutledge (upper and lower sections)
  • Weeping Fee
  • Noser (to the turn off to Roots)

Some areas the grass was getting pretty tall and some of it may be on the trails for a couple days until it dries and blows off but with +32°C today it was drying pretty quickly!

More is maintenance is planned for Wednesday and will update the list. If you are interested in helping out please reach out to us via email (moosejawpaversatgmaildotcom).

The Cycle Club app has been working well for organizing the rides and getting the information to our members. Please remember to signup for rides you intend on attending, and complete your health check using the app a minimum 1 hour before the ride. One other handy feature of the app is the ability to “subscribe” to notifications linked to events. This function is accessed for each event using the “bell” icon.

Please continue to respect the Saskatchewan Health advisements on all things biking, like remembering to social distance (3m when riding) and outdoor group limits (as of posting, 10 athletes maximum). Also, as the weather warms, don’t forget to keep hydrated, and as always, wear your helmet!

This will follow all the rules as required by Saskatchewan Health Authority and Saskatchewan Cycling Association (SCA). All that is required is a mountain bike, helmet, water bottle and a membership with the SCA and Moose Jaw Pavers (insurance coverage).
