Please DO NOT Move the Logs

Posted  May 21, 2013  by  WCC Administrator

Last night (May 24 weekend Monday) we removed the big fallen tree from The Bride, just after the bridge with handrails. The log on the Stinky Girl was left in place, with a slight modification (shown on the picture). Whenever trees fall onto the trails, we try to keep them as naturally occurring hurdles. Such […]

Race Report: Lake of Bays O-Cup #4

Posted  May 15, 2013  by  WCC Administrator

Much can be said about the Lake of Bays O-Cup #4, and here is my spiel: I shall begin with the most critical part…the weather. If mother nature could ever have a menopause meltdown, it was today, she was a cold . Wake up, 9am and the usual, have some water do my thing right. […]

Finished Boardwalks

Posted  May 13, 2013  by  WCC Administrator

The boardwalks that were dropped on to the trails early in the Spring were just left there as a temporary aid for the riders to get over muddy and flooded trail sections. On Mother’s Day, we finally installed them properly. They’ve been placed on stone footing and had nice ramps built to/off them. The approach and […]

Norco Demo Night!

Posted  May 9, 2013  by  WCC Administrator

Last night had to be the busiest night EVER on the Hydrocut Trails! Both Glasgow parking areas were completely filled and overflowing all along the Glasgow Street, on both sides from the Landfill maintenance building to the railway tracks. Some people were probably parking at the Walmart as well, and many simply came on their […]

Frankenstein’s New Exit

Posted  May 7, 2013  by  WCC Administrator

The Waterloo Cycling Club Trails are a one-way trail system; the only way to have so many visitors (up to 300 in a day), without congestion and constant head on passing. Imposing the mandatory traffic direction is difficult, but we have managed it with the help of signage and carefully laid out trail intersections that […]

Frankenstein Drainage Issues – You May Able to Help Source the Answer!

Posted  May 6, 2013  by  WCC Administrator

The Frankenstein is “rideable” if you can get across the pond, like shown on the picture. Emphasis is on: CROSSING the pond, and NOT just riding to it and them making a shortcut to the exit of the trail. Shortcutting is one of the worst offences; it should NEVER be done, regardless of what excuse […]
