Also earlier this year the Club announced the signing of a Trails Partnership Agreement with the Ministry of Tourism Culture and the Arts. This Agreement legalizes a huge portion of the mountain bike trail network in the City. By August 2010 the Club will be adding the Westsyde Area as well as Desous to this Agreement thus creating one of the largest legal trail networks in the Province!
The Club has been busy managing its obligations under the agreement over the summer and has recently installed 3 kiosks at the trailheads. They provide a detailed trail map for riders, as well as recommend routes to visitors. The trails are well signed to help riders navigate one of the fastest and flowiest riding areas in the Province.
