Vote for the NSMBA - $100 000 for North Shore Trail Revitalization Project

There is a bright future for the trails on the North Shore Mountains. But today, the trails need our help more than ever. The NSMBA is a volunteer run, non-profit charity striving to revitalize the trail network on the North Shore Mountains for all users, keeping alive a network of nature trails that will echo through generations to come.

Our mission? Trails for all, trails forever.The allure of this great wilderness draws large numbers of visitors from near and far to connect with nature and escape from the increasing pressures of urban living. Trails weave through dense groves of ferns in forests of giant trees, along rushing creeks, their banks thick with moss. It is a true rainforest paradise.

The North Shore Mountain Bike Association wants to keep it that way. But some of these trails were built over 40 years ago, in a climate that sees over 2000 mm of rain per year. Time has taken its toll, leaving trails in desperate need of repair. Now is the time to act before the work becomes insurmountable. We have a plan.

 All you locals need to step up and vote for this thing every day!! It's actually trailing behind some plan to save homeless cats! One day you may have kids or relatives that could really benefit from these trails.

 Why does it say the idea is under review on the site? It says something about inappropriate material, which is ridiculous.

 To keep posting this is a must, people forget, others don't look on certain days. Even I've voted, and it probably wont affect me at all.
