Lots of hills in BC are running bikes in the summer, and with the number of riders locally, I can't see them being anything but hugely successful. The long-range outlook for winter snow isn't looking so good lately, either.
Anyone know if there is a back story to this? Zoning or local municipalities opposed, perhaps?
Its possible that having a bike park on the shore would take some pressure off for more park-style "flow" trails on the local trail networks.
