If you ride mountain bikes in Halifax, this is important, please join us in forming Mountain Bike Halifax:
Surrounding the city of Halifax exists a rich and diverse riding experience just waiting to happen. Mountain Bike Halifax has been created to help realize that ride experience.
For all but the most recent of HRM’s history, mountain bike trails have been established and maintained by groups of passionate individuals dedicated to providing a unique outdoor experience for themselves and others. Currently, many of the ad hoc (or rogue) trails in HRM are in the best condition they have ever been. This tells us we have a population of passionate riders big enough to sustain a myriad of trails in an unorganized, informal and unfunded fashion. Imagine what this group could do if it was organized, formalized and had funding?
Aside from the underground efforts, look at the actions that have recently been happening in the public light. These include the opening of sections of the new McIntosh Run singletrack trail network and City Council’s passing of a motion to begin preliminary development of a regional mountain bike strategy. Mountain biking is gaining increased momentum in HRM and Mountain Bike Halifax aims to the keep the wheel turning - so to speak.
If all of this sounds engaging and you would like to be part of the process, please join us on October 10th for our founding meeting.
At the meeting, we will provide an overview of the philosophy of the association. We will outline the mission statement and objectives, elect a board of directors, and seek membership. There will be plenty of opportunity for question and answer.
We hope to see you there!
