East Coast Mountain Bike Association Trail Advocacy Petition sign now

As the Halifax Regional Municipality undergoes expansion, the local mountain bike community and many other groups of trail users are losing their recreational space. In the near future, trail systems such as those around Colpitt Lake/ Macintosh Run and behind the Bayers Lake Industrial Park will fall victim to development.





Although the sport of mountain biking is growing rapidly, local participants will soon have to leave the city altogether in order to ride on trails. This will increase fuel consumption and pollution, divert business from local bike shops and make it practically impossible for the youth of HRM to ride offroad. Without trails to ride on an increasing number of people, particularly children, will be forced to ride their bicycles on the streets, sidewalks and private properties. This will also minimize the training abilities of local athletes, many who currently compete on a national and international level.





The East Coast Mountain Bike Association (ECMTBA) is working towards establishing a protected area of several hundred acres designated as recreational space for mountain biking, XC Skiing, Snowshoeing and other trail-dependant recreational activities within Metro. The trails contained within this land will be strictly regulated and maintained by the ECMTBA. Such parkland will benefit not only the users, but HRM as a whole - other trail systems of this sort such as Vancouvers North Shore, Hardwood Hills in Ontario, and The Vietnam trail system in Massachusetts have become incredibly viable tourist destinations.
