Twenty-two clubs are receiving funding to improve trail riding and to promote rider safety, including the B.C. Off-Road Motorcycle Association, the B.C. Snowmobile Federation and the Quad Riders Association of British Columbia (ATVBC).

The next intake of applications to the Off-Road Vehicle (ORV) Trail Fund will begin in early 2020, with at least $200,000 available to fund applicants.

They include:

The Fraser Valley Dirt Riders Association: $13,664

Re-establishment of a safe communal staging area, beginner loop and campground, and reclaim trails lost to forestry and material borrow at Nickelmine Riding Area.

Vedder Mountain Motorcycle Club: $6,606

Plan and build a 600-metre kids loop and 2,500-metre beginner loops to help new riders learn the sport in the proper environment.
