Nicki Bridgland, RSC’s CEO & Founder with Hallie Cotnam, CBC Radio One
On Monday RSC’s Founder & CEO Nicki Bridgland was interviewed on CBC Radio One by Hallie Cotnam. The topic was the pilot grooming of the Rideau River Winter Trail that was done on Saturday, March 2nd. Have a listen to this fantastic interview about the future development of this winter sport trail grooming initiative.
RSC will do everything we can to ensure the Rideau River Winter Trail becomes the east end version of the successful SJAM (Sir John A MacDonald) Winter Trail. Nicki Bridgland says to the the Ottawa Citizen “It’s urban recreation … this is something you could do on your lunch break“.
If you are in favour of this initiative, please write a Letter of Support to your City Councillor, Mayor’s Office and NCC (National Capital Commission) – so that the necessary funding is put in place for this incredible Urban Recreation outlet.

Jeff deValk calls Overbrook home but grew up north of Toronto listening to his dad’s reel-to-reel mixtapes, records and eight-tracks and singing in the church choir. At 13 he discovered his mother’s dusty guitar hidden in the back of a closet and hasn’t put it down since. Since moving to Ottawa in 2008, he has been involved in many different groups including the seven-piece soul band he leads called the Hornettes, and Little Bones, Ottawa’s original Tragically Hip tribute act.
