9am start at BikeCo with a pancake breakfast. Projects include buffing Pioneer, connecting Back Pains to lower Bob Gnarly, maybe some Fat Tug/Smokey Tickler action, and whatever else folks can dream up. Plus a great opportunity to sign up for the PVTA and a whole ton of Pemberton Enduro propaganda.

Great day and a great turnout. Massive thank you to everyone that helped out, especially those on our new trail 'Fat Tug'. There must have been 15+people at one point. The trail is now connected and rideable, with a few sections left to polish up.

where exactly is fat tug? we had a good crew give radio tower and serious brush back and bit of a buff on some corners, she'll be fast now that you can actually see what's coming instead of getting whipped in the face!

Nice, that needed it for sure.

Fat Tug is above the reservoir and old gun range above Snob Hill. The climb starts to the left after climbing up the dirt access road past the reservoir for about 10 mins. The singletrack climb (Smokey Tickler) to the top is around 30 mins. The downhill (Fat Tug) should be about 10-15 mins when complete and will eventually end behind the fire hall/public works building (ends on the access road now)

right on! it looks really awesome…I haven't been up behind the gun range in years, probably almost 10 I bet! excited to check it out. It was so good to see such a huge turnout, so much good work got done!

It sucks that all these PVTA days are on the weekend. Would have been happy to go throw some dirt.
Looking forward to getting out and riding the new trail! Named after the beer?

Yep, the best IPA in BC! Hopefully people don't rip it up too much in the next few days as it's fairly soft but it's pretty much open and being talked about so unfortunately that's probably inevitable.

Just so no-one that ventures up there gets disappointed, there are a couple of bridges and culverts missing which will impede the flow of the trail. Also a rough upper section needs bit of love. Like I said before, it's rideable now but not complete. Regardless, enjoy! It's been a blast building it and will be all the way to completion
