New Sprockids Coordinator


The Hinton Mountain Bike Association welcomes Casey Hore as our new Sprockids Coordinator!!! Casey, a parent with two young kids in the Sprockids program, brings a lot of energy and ideas and is looking forward to the upcoming Sprockids sessions this Spring.

Tim Trahan, the Sprockids Coordinator for the past 4 years, Sprockids Coach for the past 6 years, and the Operations/Trails Board Member between 2009 and 2013, has stepped down from his coordinator role, but will still be actively involved as a coach.

The HMBA is very excited for the continued involvement of our members in such a valued program as the Hinton Sprockids.

Thank you Tim for the great job and dedication you have provided and thank you Casey for accepting this new role!!

Some Stats on Trail Usage

Bike Hinton

The HMBA invested in some trail counters last Fall and 3 were installed on trails within the Happy Creek Trail System this winter. We were curious to see what trail usage was in winter months. The average air temperature is added to the graph, and we can see that the colder temperatures didn't sway some of our trail users! Data from our trail counters will help estimate trail usage, monitor growth in usage and also to compare usage between seasons. All this data will be valuable in any future grants - we can use these numbers to show how awesome our trails are, year-round!!
