Its that time of year again… Dust off your bikes and lube those chains. We know it looks like an arctic wonderland outside, but we’re getting closer to bike season. That being said, the awesome people at GSL GM City have let us use their dealership for our 2018 Annual General Meeting! We’ll be hosting it there, Friday, April 13th at 7pm. We’ll have merch, prizes, memberships and some big announcements to make.

Hello Moose Mountain & Area Riders,
An Unauthorized Use of Public Lands notice was put up October 11th, 2017 calling for all illegal trail work to cease in the area the riding community has come to know as the Husky Trails. Immediately following the notice MMBTSstarted the conversation with the area land manager given MMBTS’ mandate to advocate for riding in the Moose Mountain area. Following these talks your MMBTS Executive, key volunteers, and local area trail builders met and unanimously voted in favour of starting the application process to have the Husky Trails included as part of MMBTS’ trail network.
Reg Mullett, MMBTS founder and Past President, is leading this project and will be asking for help from the community to ensure MMBTS’ proposal to Government is solid and gives us the best chance of maintaining the Husky Trails for future use. For now, MMBTS is asking the riding community to do a few key things in support of this process:
Observe public notices and limit trail construction and maintenance to approved trails.
Observe all parking and road signage. Specifically, please do not park at the base of or shuttle the Husky road. We also ask everyone to avoid parking on the side of Highway 66.
Always ride to your ability and respect changing trail conditions
The process for including the Husky Trails is not short and it will take time. MMBTS will update the community as progress develops and if you have any questions or desire to get involved in this process please email us at email@example.com or connect with us on Social Media <Facebook link> <Instagram link>
Come out for the last trail day of the season and put some work into the trails we’ve been enjoying all year. Bring work gloves, eye protection and good footwear and we’ll provide tools and a BBQ afterwards.
