Members night meet and greet

On Oct 13th at the Masonic hall in Cumberland we are having a meet and greet shared with a cheeky barrel of beer for UROC membership. 8pm till 10pm. 

Come and meet the trail builders, the trail crew, the UROC board of directors and staff and talk bikes, trails, forests and what the future holds for our beloved trail network. You can pick up some  UROC swag and munch on some light snacks. 

No need to make a reservation, you must be a UROC member and we look forward to seeing you on the 13th Oct, between 8pm – 10pm… we suggest you get there on time to make sure the keg is still pouring! 

Cumberland Masonic Hall, 2687 Dunsmuir Avenue

Not quite, but nearly! 

The next phase of the Vanilla build is almost ready although it’s not open yet, but its not far away! The trail is called Funky Vanilla and is on Mosaic Forestry land that runs alongside Lower Climax completing the connection between New Vanilla & Vanilla Climb. This makes for a total Vanilla experience of 4.7km of fun flow and good times. When you add Blue Print and Hunky Dory to the mix it’s nearly 7 km long and has you on Blue Square trails all the way to the fringes of the network. The New Vanilla and Funky Vanilla trails are projects that have been supported by 4VI Tourism Vancouver Island and brought together by the local trail builders and UROC.

As with any incomplete trail build, we ask users to please stay off the new works until the builders have finished their magic. Watch the UROC YoutubeFacebook, and Instagram to find out about the trail day opening.
