What’s Going On – GCC Social Feed

And now for the next big question!
1. What type of trail do you personally want built next?
2. What type of trail do you think the overall Golden community needs built next?
Please differentiate the answers. They can be the same type of trail but it is two different questions. Thanks! Don't be shy!

Bigger jumps on black diamond flow trail! Round out the harder riding in the area

I think the club should build a trail similar to full and half nelson in Squamish.. a trail that is flowy and fun, with hidden doubles and triples that you can hit or roll, a trail that you can ride on a 5" travel bike and ride with your kids or with your buddies.. but mostly because that trail is a major draw to tourists. Golden needs to get the people off the highway and spending money and having fun in our town.

Big jumps! And black and double black enduro trails. Our trails are great but really easy compared to the rest of the province.

Um— funding to improve Gorman Lake road... I know it’s not bike related, yet damn— we need to look after assets that already exist. Plus, some do bike there. 🙂

A full day blue/black alpine trail would be a great addition to the local network in terms of increasing bike tourism.

1. A technical black diamond trail to descend back through the cbt network with drops. 2.alpine xc loop (blue) would help make golden a destination(all the other bc towns are doing it...) Also just putting some serious love into the existing trails on mount 7

1. Biggest pet project: Build a few trails west of Moonrakers, to the top of Canyon Creek/LSD. Would replace the ride on the road. 2. Build a direct connector between Kicking Horse and the top of Canyon Creek (Scalli Mag is grand, but it is a long way down and more importantly, for those tourists who do stay at KH, a long way up). That connector can also serve as main line from which various downhills (black/blue) to MoonRakers could start. 3. Alpine trail for sure - blue - to serve a wide audience. 4. Think club has to serve the local talent and it appears there is a call for more extreme DH. That serves only a small group, but they are also some of the more motivated riders (?). Most tourists will shun double black trails, but then, some might come especially for the attraction (if that were of interest to the club, or Golden) 5. Bring back the rafting in the Lower Canyon - oops - sorry - wrong page

A trail that connects the networks on all sides of the valley. Maybe just cause I'm from yyc and don't know the secrets, but last summer a friend and I rode there and found that the CBT side and network wasn't enough for a whole day of riding (and was mostly green), so we had to ride through a semi residential neighborhood, then pound a bunch of highway km to get to mountain shadows. I ended up drafting a roadie for a bit... people were all friendly, shops were great, trails were super fun. Just seemed like you'd need to drive from trailhead to trailhead to tie it all together.

A fun little network of trails for the littlest crowd. I heard there is a great trail for the 4-5 year old crowd, but it seems like the windstorms affected it last year and we didn’t get to try it. We would love to get our little one riding beyond the pump tracks (which are awesome!).

1- A full size pumptrack. 2- Tech trail starting at the clearing at the end of T4. It would ease the stress on LSD. Harder trails in general. Or an alpine loop around Mt 7.

Attention trail users! The costs of operating a cycling club and all the associated trails are going up so we are discussing raising the cost of a GCC membership from $40 to $50 for an individual, and from $80 to $90 for a family. We think it is still the cheapest season pass available, how about you? YES or NO to the increase? ... See MoreSee Less

Yes to the increase. It’s cheap and having extra cash to fund projects would be great!

Yes! and maybe some accountability for groups from the city who come and use the trails to train. Annnnd groups and companies who use the trails to coach individuals for profit! Maybe some weekend marshals like the Nordic club does.
