hye man, if your in sooke you have to crawl at Wiffin Spit. took my berg there last year when I went back home for vacation and it was awesome. for trail riding I would recommend... damn near anywhere lol. tons of spots.

All I know of is the Nanaimo and Victoria race tracks have sort of a club thing. I don't think there's any crawler/basher/casual RC clubs. RCing alone is like drinking alone, I still get drunk but its just not quite as fun.
