The SCMBC board has been discussing the COVID-19 government requests for isolation and #stayhome initiatives. We’ve reviewed these items, the Posted OPP video asking for users to stay out of the forest and trails, as well as Simcoe County Forestry’s view on the forest use.
Considering all these items we have decided that the club can not at this time provide any efforts in the forest, including trail maintenance, new builds, group rides or events. We will continue to monitor and plan for efforts once it is deemed safe for the volunteers and the club to do so.
We ask that you respect the trails and the use of them and follow all government guidelines related to Social distancing and methods to flatten the curve. We do hope you family and those associated with you are safe during this time and that you continue to stay that way. If you have any further questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
