What a great event. Fun had by all at the ‘Redneck Duo’ race in McBride. An extremely welcoming group of people rightfully proud of the trail system they have created. Can’t wait to go back and battle their mountains more. #rideMcbride#mcbride
The Robson Valley Mountain Bike Association is pleased to announce the completion of three new trails. The trails can be accessed from the parking lot on Rainbow Road FSR at Kilometre 1 for hikers and cross-country mountain bikers, or Kilometre 3 for downhill mountain bikers. The new trails should be fun for snowshoeing also.
The first new trail, Jackpot, is three kilometres in length and intermediate in grade. This machine built trail is a heart pumper on the way up, fun and flowy on the way down. Smooth and curvy, this trail climbs briefly through a dense cedar forest and then opens up through a mixed stand of spruce and deciduous trees. The second trail, Ragged, can be looped with the proceeding trail to create a five kilometre loop. Mostly hand-built by volunteers for intermediate downhill mountain bikers, this trail begins with some smooth bermed corners, passes through some giant fir trees, descends through some fun rocky sections, and finishes with some smooth, rollable jumps and corners. The third new trail, Outrun, is an easy trail approximately one kilometre in length. The trail is straight and fast, climbing gradually. Eventually this trail will be looped and linked with others to extend the trail network.
Creation of these trails was made possible through generous funding from Northern Development Initiative Trust, McBride Community Forest, the Regional District of Fraser Fort George, and Recreation Sites and Trails. Gratitude to our talented and industrious workers – Jr. Walker Contracting and Specialized Forest Management, as well as to volunteer trail builders.
