Description: This project first came to NKDF in November 2005 and was approved for $3,360 to assist with the completion of the planning and assessment. That part of the project was completed in May 2006 with the help of the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA). The proponent, Burns Lake Mountain Bike Association, was incorporated as a non-profit in August 2006. Through an impressive mix of funding, volunteer time, donated labour, equipment, materials and supplies, public recognition and political will, the stakeholders have now completed Phase I of the project. This approval is to assist with furthering the development of a world class standard mountain bike park in Burns Lake.
