HOW WE GIVE BACK

The team at Essential Cycles believes in giving back to the sport and the community that we are passionate about, below are the ways we contribute to the North Shore and the mountain bike community. 

TRAIL MAINTENANCE

Jaclyn has been doing trail maintenance almost as long as she has been mountain biking on the Shore, so it's the number one way the team at Essential Cycles likes to give back.  We currently work on both Executioner Trail and Upper/Lower Crippler Trail on Mount Fromme.  Both Jaclyn and her Partner Andy are recognized North Shore Mountain Bike Association (NSMBA) Trail Builders putting in over 100 hours a year independently and leading trail days for the Muddbunnies Riding Club.

Jaclyn has also worked on a number of other trails across the Shore as both an North Shore Mountain Bike Association (NSMBA) Trail Adoption Program (TAP) builder and independently including: Kirkford, the original Bobsled, Griffen trails on Mt Fromme and Pangor, Slash, C-Buster, Dale's, Richard Juryn and Ridge Runner on Mt Seymour.
