Service committee supports a mountain bike initiative in valley

Wells Gray Country vote to support McBride to Barriere mountain bike recreation and tourism project

According to the minutes of their Feb. 18 meeting, the members of the Wells Gray Country services committee voted to support a McBride to Barriere mountain bike recreation and tourism project with a $1,000 matching grant from the Area A economic development budget.

The services committee also requested the Thompson-Nicola Regional District provide a letter of support for an application to the Labor Market Partnership Program for a grant to support the mountain bike project.

The McBride to Barriere regional investment pilot website says that the Western Canada Mountain Bike Tourism Association, in partnership with Northern BC Tourism and Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training, has collaborated to explore a mountain bike recreation and tourism strategy along the Yellowhead Highway from Barriere to Terrace.

The project goal is to collaboratively market the area as a destination for mountain bike tourism.

The partnership intends to deliver a comprehensive strategy with clear and practical recommendations to address the issues and challenges identified and to support the development of a trails and mountain bike recreation sector within the McBride to Barriere Corridor.
