Windham World Cup

Round #5 of the UCI World Cup is this weekend. This is the second year in a row the World Cup has stopped at Windham, New York. Aaron Gwin has won three of the four races so far this season and has qualified first on the short huck-to-flat track. Today's race should be interesting, as it is one of the last opportunities for the other close contenders to bump Aaron Gwin out of the top position

Sumas Mountain

Proposed Gravel Pit on Sumas Mountain Seriously Threatens Mountain biking
266531 BC Ltd has made application to begin new gravel mining on Sumas Mountain. This gravel pit will affect access to the Sumas Mt. Regional Park as well as destroy “Time Killer” in its entirety. Access to “Devils Throat”, “World Cup” and “Noah Fear” will likely be blocked as well. Mountain biking in the Abbotsford area will suffer greatly if this application goes ahead.

Boulder, Colorado

Boulder, Colorado is doing exactly what we want to see lower mainland Cities do for biking. Valmont is the future of community bike parks. Natural surface trails are an amenity and need to be viewed as a park facility. Most importantly: trails have a place in our park system.
