The Nanaimo Mountain Bike Club voted overwhelmingly Sunday to pursue formal land-use agreements with private land owners in an effort to preserve riding terrain and improve trail access for local trails.
Mark Perdue, club spokesman, said the mountain bike community rallied for a common goal that could put Nanaimo on the map as a mountain bike destination.
“There was a lot of enthusiasm that came out of the meeting from both inside the club and from outside the club,” said Perdue. “The change in focus from the club now is going from a group that just organizes rides to one that has a clear mandate for organizing this sport. People who wouldn’t normally ride with us now see a purpose in the club and have jumped on board.”
