Bring some cash, sign up for a Sooke Bike Club membership (SBC) or donate a few dollars to support the clubs efforts to maintain access to legal and sustainable multi use trails in the region! If it is anything like the trailer…this one will be worth the drive to Sooke!
So you say you haven’t yet heard of “The Cowichan Trail Stewardship Society“? Well up until not too long ago neither had I. I knew there was existing trails, and some new building going on up on Maple Mountain, but I did not know about all of the Advocacy and behind the scenes work going on up there. The Cowichan Trail Stewardship Society has signed a license of occupation with the Municipality of North Cowichan. Under this license they have worked at building what sounds like a pretty amazing new multi use trail, a 9 kilometer trail I might add. Well done to all involved! “Saturday, Oct. 26 marks the official opening of the new mountain bike and hiking trail running from the top of Maple Mountain to the parking area on Osborne Bay Road”.
I worked for many years behind the scenes on trail access and related issues. I spent countless hours organizing and volunteering my time in the pursuit of sustainable and accessible multi use trails in our region, and to see this happening so close to home is awesome! I know how much hard work these folks are doing, so from all of us not yet out there helping…thanks! I think I need to get more involved in this stuff! I have sadly been off the bike and out of the loop on a lot of local goings on, and this is pretty exciting stuff!
For more info you can check out The Cowichan Trail Stewardship Society page on Facebook and be sure to check out the Cowichan Valley Citizen article on this here. Oh and there are a ton of photos on their Facebook page to give you a good idea of what is going on up there. More details here as soon as I know more.
The Coastal Crew have just announced (on PinkBike among other places) that they are working on a new project, and not just any project. No, not a video or another trail…though I am certain those are also going on. No they have gone way over the top and have announced that they are going to build a Crowd Funded gravity park on the Sunshine Coast! Yes!
For more info and details on the Crowd Funding part of this, be sure to read the entire write up on PinkBike.com. This folks…is epic.

Vancouver Island Mountain Biking (VIMB) is a website devoted mainly to the local Vancouver Island mountain biking scene. Located on the West Coast of Canada, Vancouver Island is arguably one of the most beautiful places on earth. With year round riding and world class trails you could not ask for a better place to ride. VIMB is a relatively small community site with a strong following of core members who ride every type of terrain anywhere they can. We build, advocate for trail access, we promote our sport and we are active in all areas of the local Mountain Biking community.
Visit the community forum and say hello. Hook up for a ride, catch up on the news or post your stuff for sale. Oh and thanks for stopping by!
