Fraser Valley/Victoria – The Province is providing nearly $200,000 to B.C. outdoor clubs to support the off-road recreation industry, enhance tourism opportunities and promote healthy living for all ages and abilities.

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.

Vedder Mountain Motorcycle Club: 2,039

Create safe riding signage for trail users as well as location maps and information brochures for trail kiosks.

FYI:

  • About 10,000 kilometres of ORV trails are managed by the ministry’s Recreation Sites and Trails Branch, in partnership with community-based ORV groups around the province.
  • There are significant ORV riding opportunities on the land base, including approximately 600,000 kilometres of resource roads and managed riding areas.
