INTRODUCING – SASKATOON TRAIL ALLIANCE
In order to better reflect the mission and vision of our organization, the Saskatoon Mountain Bike Alliance will now operate as the Saskatoon Trail Alliance.
When starting this organization in 2018 we began primarily as a group of mountain bikers wanting to improve and legitimize the trails in Saskatoon. Over the course of the 2019 season, the support and interest that we received has shown the name we chose did not comprehensively represent all groups working towards improving the trails. The multi-function trail community represents walkers, runners and hikers – not just mountain bikers. Our organization’s goal was never to be an exclusive group but to be an inclusive group all working towards the same common goal. We believe that operating under a more generalized title opens doors to bridge together all trail groups and better represent all trail users in Saskatoon.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a lot of uncertainty regarding the upcoming season. It is crucial that all trail users work together to ensure that we have trails to enjoy when restrictions are lifted. Once we are able, we look forward continuing the progress made last year in bettering the trails.
We thank you for all of your continued support in developing our organization and to everyone who has played a part in improving the trails in Saskatoon.
