Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest & SSBP - Hazard tree work

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

As you may have noticed, fallers have begun bringing down trees in the South Surrey Bike Park, and throughout the entire Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest, (SAUF) of which the SSBP is apart. Every 13 years the City of Surrey, with a group of professionals, assess every treed park to determine which trees pose a hazard to citizens, and which need to be removed to reduce the hazard.  The assessment determined that 900 trees needed to be removed, 400 in the SSBP.  Although this is saddening news, SORCE understands the need for the City of Surrey to mitigate risk.  Rest assured, that almost all of these trees are completely dead without any foliage. We are working closely with the City to identify any trees we don't think should be removed, and have had success in lowering that number. 

Please be aware of this work going on in the forest over March, and be respectful and careful around the workers doing their jobs.  This fall, the City of Surrey will plant 1800 native species trees to replace the ones being removed.  Thank you for your cooperation. Garvey Allisen.

We had enough volunteers to refresh upper Dyn-o-mite Roll, repositioned a few more JYD posts, swept up the gravel by the picnic table and entrance, raked the trails of organic debris and consumed lots of coffee and Cobs treats to keep the team going.

Thank you all for a great first Trail Day of 2017.

Everyone was served a complimentary beer from our most amazing sponsor, Central City Brewery and Distillers. The meeting started with a Power Point presentation, with individual presentations from each Director. You can view it HERE.

JunkYard Cross - What a day!

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The Daryl Evans Racing JunkYard Cross CX race has to be the largest attending event in SORCE history! 261 racers took to the much praised cyclocross course setup in collaboration with Nick and James of VCXC. With remnants of a typhoon threatening to make things miserable for us we were forced to abandon sections of the planned course through the forest. This turned into a good thing as the VCXC crew found other cool features to bank and flow making for a fabulous course filled with variety and challenge.

Thank you to all our excellent sponsors; Daryl Evans Racing, Central City Brewery & Distillers, South Surrey Cycles, BC Bike Race, PhysioMoves Physiotherapy and Norco Bikes. Papa Murphy's Pizza with ovens on site prepared over 350 slices for the hungry crowd. Little Big Shot provided energy drinks, Clif Bar with energy bars, and Nitrolube provided chain lube swag. We had so much swag that about 1 in 4 persons received a door prize from are many sponsors.
