Note from the BCHBC Trail Committee

Back Country Horsemen Members:With the rising temperatures in some parts of the province we ask our members to consider where they ride.  Trails are easily damaged.........here's what you can do: Choose your trails carefully (until BCHBC approves our own "Wet Weather Riding Guidelines you can refer to the wet weather riding guide developed by a mtn bike group) Opt for a hike instead of a ride, and clear out some drains and pick up some debris off the trail kick rocks! Identify places that need maintenance.  Within a week of the melt, everything should be back to normal. Thanks in advance for being considerate and helping to protect our Right To Ride.The Provincial Trails Committee will be presenting a draft "Wet Weather Riding Policy" at the Spring Board of Directors Meeting (April 22/23 2017).If you have any comments to share please send them to This email address is being protected from spambots.
