Economic Impacts of Mountain Biking Tourism - 2016 Update
Articles like this one help Parks and City Planners sell the trails investment projects to City Council's. By dangling dollar figures like the $3.8 million that is generated in Kamloops, or having trail counts with demographic information like Revelstoke collected, makes politicians drool and gives justification for planners to complete and implement Trails Plans. The next step is to get more City Officials and Planners onto bikes and advocating for this type of recreational pursuit. PS. if your local club isn't speaking to the politicians, then they won't get funding/support. Get out to the Council meetings and state your case. You may be surprised at what good things come your way.

My 73 year old dad has asked me to sell his 2010 Trek Fuel EX8 for him. The bike has not been ridden hard, and most of its use has been on gravel roads. Here’s the details: Frame and Fork • Frame Tubing Material: Trek Alpha Red Series aluminum w/ABP, E2, EVO • Rear Shock: Fox Float RP2 w/DRCV, Pro Pedal, 120mm-travel Wheels and Tires • Hubs: Front: Bontrager Select; Rear: Shimano M525 • Tires: Bontrager XDX, 26 x 2.2 Components • Brakeset: Avid Elixir 5 disc • Shift Levers: Shimano SLX • Pedals: Crank Brothers Candy C • Rear Cogs: SRAM PG950, 9-speed: 11-32 • Saddle: Bontrager Race • Handlebar: Bontrager Race • Handlebar Stem: Bontrager Race Lite Factory Description Trek's Fuel EX 8 is primed for backcountry rides, hard-charging action and fun spins after work. This cool ride boasts Trek's Full Floater suspension technology with 120mm of ultra-smooth, tunable front/rear travel thanks to Fox. The rear shock was co-developed with Trek and has 2 chambers: a small one for bumps at low speed and a larger one for big hits, making your Fuel pedal incredibly well AND giving you that bottomless feel at speed. The frame is built with Alpha Red aluminum for lightness, stiffness and excellent efficiency and sports Trek's Active Braking Pivot technology that keeps your rear end active while braking. Complementing the trick frameset are light, fast and tough Bontrager wheels, sure-stopping Avid Elixirs and a Shimano SLX/XT drivetrain that delivers crisp, quick shifts every time.

Trip of a Lifetime in the BC Kootenays
These photos are amazing, and I want to go ride each of those trails...the problem is that I don't know what trails they are. It's great that you tell me which city they are located in, but in articles like this one it would be nice to know which trail the photo is taken on. This way, I'm not spending days trying to figure out how to get to each location.
