Winter Wheeling 2023 at Minden Offroad Park
Another great trip with the club and many smiling faces! TEC members got to practice recovery skills in the snow, learned how to conquer icy hills, and enjoyed being outdoors! Thank you everyone for coming, and looking forward to seeing each and every of you at our annual Ardbeg Spring Trail Cleanup!
Ardbeg Fall 2022 Trail Cleanup
This year Toyota Enthusiast Club (TEC) ventured around the Ardbeg area where club members successfully removed 300 lbs of garbage including beer cans, abandoned camping gear, automotive parts, and other waste that is left by those that don’t share the “tread lightly” principles. We are happy to announce that compared to previous years we could not find as much garbage, which is great news. Let's continue respecting our trails by keeping them clean!
During VMUTS exploration TEC members were asked by OPP officer for assistance to transport an injured ATV rider. Everyone in the group was ready to give a hand and after unloading the truck bed two medics put the injured ATV rider in the back and rode with him to the helicopter. ATV rider is currently recovering and would like to thank all TEC members who assisted that weekend.

2021 Ardbeg Fall Trail Clean Up
October is the time when everything bursts with its last beauty. It’s when you get the last warm nights where you can socialize with old friends and make some new ones. As per annual tradition, Toyota Enthusiast Club (TEC) has organized their fall cleanup weekend and successfully removed 500 lbs of garbage including a stove, freezer, beer cans, abandoned camping gear, automotive parts and other waste that is left by those that don’t share tread lightly principles.
Over the course of the weekend, a group of 35 people went through North, South, and Black Loop trail systems where they collected waste that was left behind.
TEC would like to thank everyone who attended the cleanup weekend and helped to keep our trail systems clean for others to enjoy. We also would like to thank Dave Creasor from the Municipality of Whitestone for granting permission to dispose of the waste.
2020 Ardbeg Fall Trail Clean Up
In early August, Evgeny from the Toyota Enthusiast Club sent out a call to their members for volunteers to participate in a cleanup of the Ardbeg trail & camping area.
The TEC club, who just adopted the Ardbeg trail this year, already recognized the need to be good stewards.
By September, they already had their plan all laid out for the weekend, and when the Ontario government suddenly slashed the outdoor gathering limits, they didn’t cancel or post-pone their event.
The Toyota Enthusiast Club took the time to pre-register everyone online and break everyone up into groups of no more than 5 trucks per group, and pre-assign them an area to be responsible to clean up to maintain social distancing.
The groups headed out to their pre-assigned areas and got to work cleaning up the trash and articles left behind by other users. Additionally, the group working on the south trail stopped at the 2nd bridge and spent some time repairing the degrading gravel surface leading up to the bridge.
In the end, with all their trucks loaded with garbage and scrap, the Toyota Enthusiast Club removed over 700lbs of garbage from the trail.
Great job to everyone that lent a hand!
Don’t forget that we all need to Tread Lightly! and pack out everything that we pack in.
