What’s Going On – GCC Social Feed
Unfortunately, we have had to indefinitely postpone the Spring Kids Camp due to the current health situation. While there is a chance it may happen later in the year, it could also be cancelled outright. Stay tuned for more information.
Stay safe out there. ... See MoreSee Less
Timeline PhotosWe apologize in advance for the blunt message, but it seems to be necessary. Some people are just not getting it.
PACKED PARKING LOTS AND BUSY TRAILS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE.
(Not that any of the trails in the valley are rideable anyway, but thats a whole different discussion.)
We get it, spring is here, things are getting warm, you've got lots of free time on your hands, and you're anxious to ride some trails.
Unfortunately, bigger things are at play, and if we don't do our part by ACTUALLY distancing ourselves from one another, things WILL get much worse.
So what does that mean? You can't ride your bike?
Of course not - now, more than ever, we need physical exercise and fresh air from going completely batty, but we need to change our approach to things. This means riding from home, sticking to way easier terrain, hanging up the shuttle rigs for a while, and empowering yourself to make decisions that benefit others.
It is easy to appropriately distance yourself on a bike, even on singletrack. It is next to impossible once you throw in a packed parking lot and passing other riders, and walkers. If you can't maintain 2m of separation, its time to change YOUR plans.
These restrictions will only pass if EVERYONE does their part, otherwise, expect our rec sites and trails to close extremely soon. It's happening on the coast because people are being irresponsible, and its going to happen here as well.
Do your part. Change your routine, tell your friends and family to do the same.

Golden Cycling Club AGM is on Wednesday April 22 at the Whitetooth Brewery.
Why should you come to the AGM? Most importantly, this is the election for the Board of Directors, aka; the people who help shape the direction of the club. If you want more than just your say, if you want to make things happen, if you want to fight for your trails, advocate for certain demographics, make projects happen, crush some behind the scenes work; JOIN THE BOARD! This is also a chance to see the Golden Cycling Club come together as a whole. It's members, its directors, its plans and goals. The GCC isn't just some faceless facebook page. It is the cyclists of Golden. Come and be apart of it, meet your brethren, talk about what needs to get down. And buy your membership! That is the piece that gives the GCC it's power. Trails don't come from nowhere.
What do the directors do? Spearhead trail construction. Fundraise for those trails. Organize kids camps. Plan races and events. Organize trail work days. Lobby for local Government funding. Push through red tap so biking can grow. Deal with land management issues. Communicate to it's members. Be a voice for the community. Come and check out what is happening and get involved. The club is always looking for passionate people to join the board and/or volunteer. How do you join? Find a director before the meeting and say you'd like to get involved. During the election, shout out from the crowd, when asked, that you want in. That's it!
6 pm Social: Hang out with your bike buddies, smack talk, make plans, high five, check out this year's plans.
7 pm Meeting: Election!
Columbia Valley Catering will be dishing out their usual deliciousness. Whitetooth will, of course, have their beer available.
Memberships will be available that night but why not save yourself the lineup hassle and get it now at goldencyclingclub.com/membership-support/ ... See MoreSee Less
