Vancouver - Bike Skills Park Advocacy

The Vanier Park bicycle skills park is owned by the City of Vancouver and maintained by a dedicated group of locals.
October 1st was supposed to be the start date for Joyride Bike Parks pump track expansion at Vanier. The City has hired a contractor and they are ready to start Monday (outside of the migratory bird nesting season).

The project was carefully planned to improve the forest by retaining all existing healthy trees, removing invasive species, planting native species, and avoiding the migratory bird nesting seasons.

A few local "eagle enthusiast" NIMBYs have caused yet another delay (this time may be the end) of the construction due to the "possibility" that the eagles may re-nest in the bike park.

The eagle nest fell down this summer naturally and has JUST been artificially rebuilt by the eagle enthusiasts in hopes of getting this pump track (and possibly the entire jump park) shut down by NIMBY-ism.

PLEASE email tiina.mack@vancouver.ca, malcolm.bromley@vancouver.ca, pbcommissioners@vancouver.ca and vancouverdirtjumps@gmail.com about why you think a pump track should be built. Even just a few sentences! We really need your help on this right away! Thanks!
