Sausage Suit ITT - Race/Fundraiser

Come on out this Saturday Sept. 6th to the Dufferin county forest for the Sausage Suit ITT. The Sausage Suit ITT is a fun trail ride/race as well as an IMBA fundraiser. $5 from each entry fee goes straight to the IMBA. The Sausage Suit ITT will cover 15k/30k of pure single track with lots of bridges and a sneaky rock garden. Free camping after the ride with a night ride planned. The Team Van Go club will be giving out some food and will be happy to talk about all the hard work they have put into keeping the trails open.

GRANT APPLICATION SUBMITTED FOR 8KM OF NEW SINGLE TRACK

As you may have read in the IMBA News feed (http://www.imbacanada.com/news/federal-government-launches-10-million-na...) the Federal Government has approved $10,000,000 for trail building projects across Canada. The allocated funds will finance up to 50% for each trail project selected. While this great news for all trail users in Canada, what is most relevant to the DMBA is that $700,000 of the $10 million has been earmarked for non-motorized trails in Ontario.
