NORTH SHORE MOUNTAIN BIKE ASSOCIATION ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

 

 

Dear Member,

The North Shore Mountain Bike Association (NSMBA) will be holding the Annual General Meeting on Wednesday November 26th in the Lynn Valley neighbourhood of North Vancouver. At this meeting we will elect the Directors of the Board for the 2015 operating year, as well as report on what we did to make mountain biking better on the North Shore in 2014, we hope to see you at the meeting.

Thanks to support from BC Parks' Park Enhancement Fund & Arc'teryx, the NSMBA made its way to Vancouver Island in September to deliver the North Shore Builder Academy in Nanaimo, Campbell River and Victoria.

 

 

The NSMBA is proud to announce the Academy dates for 2015.
 

Thanks to support from BC Parks Park Enhancement Fund and Arc'teryx, the North Shore Builders Academy hits the road this month, starting with Vancouver Island.  In October, the Academy will make its way to the Interior.  The Academy is focussed on sustainable solutions, care for the environment and a positive user experience. The NSMBA is proud to partner with other trail associations in the Province to expand opportunities for the sport and create a culture of stewardship.

The NSMBA will travel to Nanaimo, Campbell River, Victoria, Kamloops, Vernon, Hope and Barriere this fall.

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome Aboard Christine!

The NSMBA is proud to announce the addition of Christine Tetrault to our team.  As our newest employee, Christine will manage the Administration of the organization. The NSMBA has grown by leaps and bounds over the past five years and so too has our administrative work load.  With support from MEC's Capacity Grant funding, the position will support the goals of the organization to expand opportunities for Mountain Biking on the North Shore.

 
Some changes to our 2014 TAP line up.  We welcome Giant Vancouver and Telus to the TAP family!
To date, TAP has accounted for over 50 trail days!
When the rains return, the work will continue into the fall and winter.  
Support those who support the Shore!
 

The NSMBA would like to acknowledge the continued support from MEC with the recent granting of funds to increase our capacity as an organization.  The NSMBA will be using these funds to hire our second employee to focus on administrative tasks to manage the heightened work flow that has increased as our success and growth have flourished.  A portion of these funds will be directed towards partnership development.

 

 

There has been an ongoing rash of vandalism over the past few months, particularly on Fromme.  There have been many signs removed and scratched beyond recognition, including the burning of the Expresso sign. The amount of time and effort to identify, print and replace these signs could be better spent working on trails.
There has also been logs strewn on MTB trails-the dangers here are obvious.  

As riders of the Shore, we ask for your help reporting any suspicious activity or trail hazards discovered. If you know the person(s) responsible, please contact us or the local authorities.
