South Surrey Cycles Toonie #2 at SSBP

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Cool, windy, but sunny weather greated 21 racers at the April 2nd Toonie #2 XC race at South Surrey Bike Park.

The JunkYard Dog course was mostly dry, with a few muddy spots after the heavy rains of late. Racers were the first to try out a new feature, Little Ripper at sign post #8. Created by Vince and Larry, the drop is now augmented with a cool roll over, a rollable jump to follow, and into a mini rock garden. A perfect test before the JunkYard Dog BC Cup racers hit the circuit in 3 weeks.

Special thank you to title sponsor South Surrey Cycles, who provided some cool swag and mechanic Justin with his full complement of tools for tune ups. He was kept busy.  Check out the photos on FLICKR, and a couple live FB video clips of the action on our FB page. Race results on WEBSCORER.

Rocky Cycle Shed Toonie #1 - recap

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

A respite from the rain greated over 20 racers at the Delta Watershed for Toonie race #1, March 12. 

Brett layed out another excellent course through the challenging trails of the Shed. The 5km laps took riders over familiar trails and some not so familiar to spice up the race. The mud was relentless but didn't dampen the racers spirits in the least - I think they relished it! Thank you Rocky Cycle for sponsoring the day with some great swag. Lorelei took some fantastic photos which are up on the Flickr page HERE.

Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest & SSBP - Hazard tree work

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.

Trail Day Report

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

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.
