Fat Bike Grooming Fundraising Update Dec 11, 2018
GBCTA elves were in the West Bragg Parking lot this past Saturday, spreading the word about the need for donations to support the Fat Bike Fat Wallet campaign. Thank you to everyone who responded; we collected about $400 in hand, plus we obtained many commitments for on-line donations from bikers, walkers and skiers. It was a busy, perfect day to do both friend raising and fundraising for trails maintenance. On Global Fat Bike day (Dec 1st) we canvassed the WB Parking Lot and collected $900. Online to date we are at $3900 making for a total of over $5200. Our goal is $12,000 by Dec 31st. We are one third of the way to meeting out goal. Keep on supporting your West Bragg Creek Trails!
Groomers spent approx. 10 hours after the last snow and conditions are still really good. Thanks to all who donated and many thanks to our GBCTA fat bike groomers.
The Early Days of Treadsetting…
When I started experimenting with treadsetting for fatbiking in December of 2015 and January of 2016, I was pulling a groomer with snowshoes and my fatbike. I was setting a track on the logging road between Snakes n Ladders were it crosses Ranger Creek and Mountain Road. Attached are some pictures of the early days of treadsetting… Someone else was also treadsetting in the area with a blue milk crate mounted on a piece of plywood. – A.J.
