BORCA has been busy installing cedar posts and trail name signs within the Whitewater Trails located in and around the Whitewater Brewery (which, in case you weren't aware, is now fully open as a PUB!) The recommended loop starts at the brewery and takes a right turn onto Grant Settlement Rd, just 1km up the paved road to 2180 Grant Settlement Rd and from there you can ride singletrack back to the brewery. For more riding head 4km up Fletcher Rd to the Beachburg County Forest trails where some fast and flowy singletrack awaits you.
We have a map close to being done and it will readily available for all, once completed, along with a large trailhead sign/map at the brewery.
BORCA has also been busy with the 'Friends of Little Lakes' group, enhancing a local swim spot just 1km outside of Beachburg. To date the FOLL have raised over a $1000 of cash and in-kind donations, picked up two trailer loads of grabage, create a garden, a trail, some fishing platforms and will be purchasing some picnic tables and a floating swim raft....a great post-ride cool-down on a hot day!
Events: Tour de Bonnechere (TBD) is happening August 17th, in Eganville. There's a 100k, 60k or Family Ride (to the Bonnechere Caves). It's a Pot Luck style post-race/awards. The TDB is a 'ride' and not a 'race' with an amazing atmosphere and the route includes some of the Valley's toughest climbs (Foymount Hill, Letterkenny, etc....).
Oh yeah....FYI, tentative date for the 2015 Spring Chicken is Saturday May 9th...
Happy Trails :)
