The government agencies implementing the trail closures around Canmore in the summer of 2001 demonstrated a complete lack of respect for Mountain Bikers and recreationalists. The BCEAG communication strategy was completely disregarded, trails were destroyed and Mountain Bikers were told to "go somewhere else".
When Mountain Bikers and other recreationalists publically challenged the trail closures, the politicians hid behind the bureaucrats and the bureaucrats attempted to justify the closures by using such contortious arguments as "emergency closures" and "extensive public participation". At the end of the day, it was clear what had happened: Mountain Bikers and other recreationalists were the politically weakest group and in the eyes of a Provincial Government - desperate to look good following the inevitable (and foreseeable) environmental out cry that followed the Canmore sprawl - recreationalists and Mountain Bikers would be sacrificed. Damn right Mountain Bikers are pissed!
The tragedy is that the "Chain Saw Massacre" could have been avoided.
Mountain Bikers, if given half a chance, could become partners with BCEAG. We know the only solution is a win-win solution for both recreationalists and wildlife. The BVMBA believes such a solution is attainable, and, notwithstanding the "bad will" created by the 2001 trail closures, the BVMBA wants Mountain Bikers to stop looking backwards and look forwards to the only solution, namely a properly planned trail system, built with wildlife in mind.
BCEAG has made a good will gesture to recreationalists – they have held out the olive branch of ROWG (the Recreational Opportunities Working Group). The BVMBA, although initially skeptical, now strongly endorses the ROWG process, and encourages all Mountain Bikers, big and small, armored and unsuspended, to participate in the ROWG process.
The BVMBA wants all Bow Valley Mountain Bikers to stand, united, and speak to ROWG about solutions that will result in the creation of a trail system that both creates great riding opportunities and allows functional wildlife corridors.

STAND UP, STAND TOGTHER, AND WE ALL RIDE FOREVER!!!!
Ann Walton has put together a real hit, and rightfully
so the movie has just won the "best mountain bike film" award at
the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival.
This first all-female mountainbike movie combines
great documentary style stories and archival footage with sweet
tunes and great riding. It features top female XC, downhill, and
dual-slalom racers such a Chrissy Redden, Cheri Elliott, Elladee
Brown, Cindy Devine and many other riding throughout British Columbia
and the U.S, including Vancouver's North Shore, Kamloops, Whistler
This film is a great eye opener and a source of inspiration
in this male dominated sport. You can pick up a copy in
our on-line store or go to http://www.dirtdivas.ca/
