HUGE NEWS: BC Parks Partnership Agreement for Gowlland Tod Signed


I’m very happy to announce to you that…

Last weekend I signed the Partnership Agreement between BC Parks and SIMBS for authorized mountain bike access to Gowlland Tod Provincial Park. This agreement will be carried out in phases, with the first being an existing trails assessment. We will need volunteers to help collect information about the existing trail network. Once that is done and approved by the Province, we can start repairing and/or re-routing the trails to form a consistent network.

The first area we will be dealing with is the riding spot commonly known as Partridge Hills, as well as across Willis Point road to the East and down to Saanich Inlet. This is a very large space, and it will take years to develop into a proper sustainable trail network. Once the Partridge Hills and surrounding space is well established as a complete network, we will move on to the second area of the Gowlland Tod range which extends from Tod Inlet to Mt Finlayson. These are very large areas and there is a lot of work that will need to be done.

If you are interested in being part of creating this brand new mountain biking area in Victoria, please let me know at

Hartland Trail Maintenance – April 27

Hello SIMBS Trail Crew.

Trail director (1/2) Greg Cantelon here.

Please join us for SIMBS Trail Maintenance Sunday April 27th, 2014 at 8:45 am at the Hartland parking lot. As always we supply the tools, gloves and training.

This session will be pushed to the right somewhat due to the long weekend (was supposed to happen April 20th). For our April TM session, work will occur in a variety of areas. Numbers permitting we plan on working on:

  • Continued rehab of Shock Treatment 3 and (possibly) surrounding trails in the interest of establishing a planned for “intermediate loop”.
  • Continued progress with Chad on WYD.
  • Possible remedial work on trails in the North end.

There is also a Rocky Mountain Bikes Demo day happening at the park the same Sunday; we should be well entrenched before that starts, however. Parking midday will probably be tough.

RSVP me ( by Friday April 18th AM if you wish to attend and indicate your choice of sandwich; roast beast, turkey, or veggie. If you don’t respond by the deadline, you are still welcome to join us – just bring your own snack.

Email if you have any questions or to let us know you are coming. Bring your bike for a ride afterwards – we have secure storage.

Your Simbs Trail Directors,
Craig Gillet
Greg Cantelon
