FAT BIKERS!

The grooming plate has been built and is working great
Fat bike trails now groomed are:
Scallimag, Odanata, Buzz, Hemptera, Upper CBT and Arrowhead to the Tequila junction. This will be the main hub for fat biking.

We are working with a limited snow pack with poor snow quality and will be working on improving the quality of these trails before opening up more riding options depending on snow.

Enjoy!

This will be a pivotal winter for the fat tire scene in Golden. Great job gang! That snow 🐶 is a game changer.

Attention fat bikers! No, not you, the bikers with the big tires. Golden Outdoor Recreation Association has a trail grooming machine and is grooming trails for your enjoyment.

Scallimag is groomed and ready to ride. Once we have a little more snow, Odanata, Buzz, and Hemiptera are next on the list.

We don't believe this will increase the melt time of the trails and have chosen trails that are typically late to open just in case. So don't stress about spring riding and get out there and enjoy your fat bikes!

Coming from your neighbors down the valley - we found absolutely no difference in melt time with groomed vs. ungroomed trails. What we did find, however, is a direct correlation between groomed trails and huge smiles. 🤘

Wicked!!! What about in town trail so we don’t have to drive our fatty 🙂

How wide will the grooming be? Can’t wait to try it!

We have one of those in vernon this year. Going to groom predator and parts of Ellison. Can you send a photo of your grooming implement. Ie what you are dragging. We are trying to work that out.

John Redekopp, Karey Lee. This is what we need!

Awesome! Gives the Fat Bikers a place to go so they are not tempted by the Nordic ski trails!

Remember when the wind blew so hard that biking came to a screeching halt on Mount 7? Do you also remember how the community donated $$$ to recover the trails? Well, thanks for that; we're back on track! ... See MoreSee Less

Do you have siding to help finish the Schacher Pavillion? Please reach out and help.

If 1x6 were available we’d need aprox 72 x 10’ and 18x 12’.The pavilion needs siding! Anyone have access to free (or really cheap) siding material? Same product inside and out would be fine.

Last week was our end of season wrap up party, the Fall Fun Down. Lots of smiling faces during the Poker Ride, Paw Patrol, Clinics, BBQ, Unicycling, and Chainless DH.

Andy Bostock re-confirmed his white jersey status with a win on the Chainless Downhill and Reg Mullett took the pot in the Poker Ride.

Big thanks to everyone that supported it and volunteered.
