Join in support of "sharing the road" and in Paul Bally's memory, Saturday, April 8th in the Comox Valley. Paul was a teacher, friend, father and husband, a son, he could be any of us or anyone we love – he was fatally hit by a vehicle while riding in December of 2014. A Bike Rally will leave from the Fanny Bay Community Hall at 3pm and heads a short distance south to a memorial site for Paul where a Ghost Bike will be placed in his memory. The rally then heads single file northbound back to Courtenay along the Island Hwy. A shorter route leaves Royston Seaside Trail at Royston Road at 4pm, families welcome. Each group ends at Courtenay City Hall at 4:45pm for some short speeches in memory of Paul and for safe cycling. Donations (suggested 10$) will be graciously accepted and placed in Paul's name with the Comox Valley Cycling Coalition for a future project in support of safe cycling.

Island Cup – Vancouver Island Mountain Bike Race Series Campbell River XC is this weekend!

Island Cup – Vancouver Island Mountain Bike Race Series

Here's a course description from Bryan and course map.

Travel directions provided in another post.

"Here's a map of the new course. It's about 11km with 150m of elevation per loop. You start off going towards Mudhoney and finish on Ogies. We are still playing with the start set up to make sure we can get some separation in the pack before the hole shot. Parking will be very tight with snow banks still on the road likely… car pooling strongly encouraged.

NOTE– different parking lot than normal… Lost Lake lot on Loveland Bay road. Brewster Lake road is still closed from Dam work so you have to head out of Campbell River and take Duncan Bay Main."

Pumpkinator…Burnt Ridge…Coquihalla …. sounds like Island Cup – Vancouver Island Mountain Bike Race Series HAMMERFEST XC !! Another awesome Race Report just in, this time from Hudson of the Trail Bicycles Cycling Team, read all about his race below:

Burnt Ridge, Coquihalla, Pumpkinator…!! A full detailed Race Report from Island Cup – Vancouver Island Mountain Bike Race Series Hammerfest XC last weekend (March 11) by Hudson of Trail Bicycles Cycling Team :
The Saturday pre-ride was a wet cold day but mother nature was on our side and our great support crews and team appreciated. The lap was 9.5km long with some fresh trails, roads and fun curvy trails. It was a blast.
Play by play of riding one lap:
1. It was a gravelly road race to a new trail cut just for the race, Route 66. As soon as you got on the new trail there was a traffic jam. Only the aggressive people or the leaders had a chance to go at a good pace on there. Fun trail though. I thank traveler, Luc and Sol for the constant howling as we tried our hardest to pick up speed . Trails Bike team has the best cheer leaders.
2. Burnt Ridge – was a muddy trail but wider and areas to pass it was a good climb.
3.Coquihalla – now for the real climb. We are warm now. We were getting tired but then we hit a logging road. It felt like we were at the top but guess what some more climbing.
4.DH trail- as my dad said the DH trail was put in to break us but that was it for the climb.
5.Machete –Now for the fun down the tight flowing slippery trail good times
6. Pumpkinator- This new trail was super fun . I really want to ride it again.
7. Panty Line into Walrus this was a fun ridge line flowing downhill cruise and then down a logging road as fast as you can to the finish. The loop was hard with super fun downhill.

Some results from the Trails Bicycle Team and friends
Beginner female: Emmy Lan 1, Eva Leikermoser2nd
Friends : Sarah Robert (DCR) 3rd and Brailyn Webster 4th
Beginner Male: Hudson Webster 3rd, Erik Leikermoser 10th
Intermediate Female: Anja Leikermoser 6th
Intermediate Male: Erik Ashton 15th, Ian Lehton 24th Chuck Ashton 25th Dean Nilsen 27th
Expert Female: Emily Johnston 1st
Expert Male: Kieran Nilsen 3rd, Jacob Yells 7th Dan Lehton 18th
I had a pretty good ride and if only the lap was a tad longer I might have been able to catch the boy on the Devo team that was only 1 minute ahead of me. Next time.

Our first Trail Bicycles Cycling Team Race Report of the year…brought to you by our newest team member, Emmy Lan!

The Victoria Canada Cup XC at (March 4/17) was a super fun race. Everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves before, during and after the race. The burgers and drinks made it easy to laugh and talk to strangers. And watching the Olympic Bronze Medalist Cathrine Pendrel zoom by you riding the same course you did a couple hours before was AWESOME!

My race started at 8:30a.m, in the snow! It was a fun course that I enjoyed. I raced in the U15 women category and finished in 2nd with a time of 35.07. It felt very early season, especially with all the snow on the ground. While I haven’t done very much riding this winter I was happy to have been riding my bike to school all year to at least keep me on my bike! Also racing in my category was Eva Leikermoser with a time of 39.03 landing her in 3rd place. Trail bicycles had many racers out there who did an amazing job! Hudson Webster competing in the U13 men came 2nd with a time of 34.41. In U15 men Erik Ashton came third with a time of 26.09 also racing in that category was Ian Lehton with a time of 32.25 in 6th. Racing in U17 men doing 3 laps was Kieran Nilsen with a time of 48.30 putting him just shy of the podium in 4th. Also competing in U17 men was Breckin Nowak with a time of 49.43 in 7th place and Jakob Yells in 10th with 51.30. In the U17 women category, Emilly Johnston raced to a 1st place finish with a speedy time of 52.53. And in masters men Dan Lehton came 6th with a time of 1:24.37. It was fun to finish off the day by pre-riding the enduro course for the next day’s race.

Everybody on the Trail Bicycles Cycling team did an amazing job and it was awesome to see so much Trail Bicycles Baby Blue on the podium.

Trail Builders Workshop

Trail Builders Workshop

RCCC and BC Parks have partnered to bring Trail Holistics' instructor Mark Wood back to CR to present their Trail Builders Workshop – Level I: the Foundation. The workshop will introduce students to the principles of trail construction, components of sustainability, trail fundamentals, trail assessment and planning & construction.

There will be a classroom session from 9am to 12pm on Saturday, followed by a field session at a site in the Pumphouse. On Sunday there will be a follow up field session to finish the project and practice some of the skills learned on day one.

There is room for 20 folks in the course, but priority will be given to current RCCC members. Students are asked to bring work clothes suitable to the weather conditions, gloves, food and water for the day. If you have any questions please post below.
