Founded in the summer of 2018, SMTBA was created by bikers to grow the mountain bike community and create opportunities for sustainable outdoor recreation in Saskatoon. Our team has a shared vision of expanding and refining our trail network, making Saskatoon a premier prairie mountain biking destination. The goal of SMTBA is to collectively focus the efforts of the many talented and passionate mountain bikers and trail builders we have in this community. SMTBA will be there to support bike clubs, trail builders, and trail users. We want to unite trail builders, mountain bikers, and outdoor enthusiasts by partnering with many key stakeholders in the community.

Heading out on a day trip with room for a few extra friends? Itching to get out and do something, but need a few more people to make it happen? Have an activity/destination you always wanted to try out, but no idea where to start? Or just have a question to help you get out adventuring? This group is intended to meet new people with shared interests and build an experience-sharing community! Invite your friends!
More of a community than a club, the goal of the Outtabounds Hi-5 Club is to provide an atmosphere where, regardless of your ability, or even of what kind of bike you have, you can come out for a weekly ride, throw out and receive high-fives, and absorb all the good vibes.
This club is open to both Men and Women, but if you are of the female variety and are more comfortable riding with a group of women, then the ladies division of the Hi-5 club (Girls on Bikes YXE) is definitely something you should check out.
Perhaps one of the best things about running is that in can build community, friendships and help develop grit. Because we believe so strongly in the power of a good run, we facilitate several run clubs a week, free of charge.
Run Club is a core element of our store, providing a positive place for runners of all levels to meet and learn from each other in a friendly, social environment. Run Club meets at the store three times a week and divides into groups based on pace and ability. The group leaders come from within the group, offering a chance to lead or follow. If you’ve come out a few times, try your hand at leading! Come connect with others, and take a step (or many steps!) toward a healthier, more active life. The group is free and open to all.
Bike Doctor Detours is a non-profit cycling club that organizes non-traditional
rides and races. In 2016, we began by organizing group “gravel rides” on our
prairie back roads.
Since then, we have expanded to include new events such as a fun triathlon, a
night cyclo-cross race, a park rampage, a long ride that includes a ferry crossing
of the Saskatchewan River, and a ride and brunch at the Berry Barn. The club
also now includes a women’s road riding group called the Pedal Wenches, which
meets on Thursday evenings from May to July. Check our calendar for events
and ride schedules, then sign up to join in!

The Saskatoon Canoe Club does not rent canoes or provide any access to club gear or the boathouse for non-members.
Back 40 Everyday First Aid is our core connection to Saskatchewan’s people. Anyone growing up in rural Saskatchewan could tell you what back forty means and likely share endless stories of people who were sick, injured or killed in the back forty. These stories share a common theme – Being the furthest away, in the middle of “nowhere”, with a medical emergency is inconvenient at best. In every case, first aid mattered and common sense prevailed.
Saskatchewan rural life is still thriving and Saskatchewan people are living and working in areas where time seems to slow down and patience becomes a virtue, especially when dealing with an emergency. Our hope is to connect with any individual, club, organization, social circle, or business who contributes to our Saskatchewan community to focus on the everyday first aid situations that may befall them. There should be no barrier to learning first aid.
Saskatoon Search and Rescue (SSAR) is a ground search and rescue team made up of dedicated volunteers who desire to help and assist others in need in our community by giving their time for training, search missions, preventative information and public awareness. They are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
People often overthink Saskatchewan as a mecca for adventure, but we are truly lucky to be surrounded by so much beauty all around. Connecting with the right people is the perfect place to start for your next adventure! Do you know of a group in Saskatchewan that is not on the list, let us know! We are always trying to connect with more like minded people.
