Trail Development

What's Happening? 

In the face of the challenges that we faced with the pandemic, NCMBA has found innovative ways to continue to move forward with the development of the association by adapting to the use of online platforms for our meetings and consultations.

 

In the past four years we have consulted with members of the community, local First Nation Authorities, the City of Prince Rupert, and other local stakeholders and associations. We also consulted with the Provincial Government through Recreation Sites and Trails BC (RSTBC) on trail development and have expressed our community’s need for biking opportunities.

 

We assessed the viability of several potential mountain bike trail locations and secured a location for an asphalt pump track with the City of Prince Rupert council approval, We are awaiting community feedback before full approval and lease signing can be announced to our members. We publicly surveyed the community in 2020 to better understand our existing and potential member needs. The results of our survey have guided our priorities for the last four years and will continue for another 2-3 years.

2024 will kick off a major fundraising component for our asphalt pump track project with hopeful completion in the year.

 

Our strategy for fundraising includes securing several large grants to be utilized for the pump track construction and completion in 2023-24.

 

We have received Provincial approval for the Cell Tower Trails, and trail design is in the works.

McElhanney won the contract and toured the site in 2022. As well, we continue to engage with local businesses, and big and small industries for donations or grants, community fundraising support, and in-kind donations such as materials and labour.

We know you want some liquid sunshine and we are working hard to bring mtb biking to our community!
