|About the Walden MTB Club|
The Walden Mountain Bike Club was formed in the fall of 2008. We are an incorporated, not for profit club that is run by a volunteer Board of Directors. We are affiliated with the Ontario Cycling Association as well as the International Mountain Bike Association. We currently have approximately 60 members.
Our home venue is the Naughton ski trails. We maintain the singletrack trail system, and help the Walden Cross Country Fitness Club with their trails when our help is required. The club has established a members only riding group that rides in the Sudbury area several times during the week in the Sudbury Area .
In 2009 the Walden Mountain Bike Club was asked to host the Sudbury Fitness Challenge Mountain Bike Tour MTB race, and hosted a very successful event, with races for all ages and abilities. 82 racers provided us with an exciting day of racing. We will host the event again in 2010.
The "Wolfpak Racing" Team was formed earlier this year with 8 club racers who have participated in all of the Plastiglas Ontario Cup, Canada Cup, 8 and 24 hour events. The club has done very well so far this year so far with 4 1rst place finishes and several top 20 placings.
The Walden Mountain Bike Club will proudly host the Ontario's best Minime and Cadet division racers in Naughton for the Ontario Summer Games 11-13 August 2010. The Sudury Fitness Challenge MTB event will go on 15 August 2010.
In 2011, we started a summer skill development program for kids aged 9 to 13.
***Our mission is to bring mountain bike riders together. We also strive to promote a fitness based lifestyle and to foster an ethical and responsible mindset within our membership***
