The TRMBA has set our sights on a paved pump track for Tumbler Ridge. Pump tracks are a great place for all ages and abilities to develop skills and confidence. This would be the only one of it’s kind in Northern BC and would ideally be in a visible location to help drive visitation.
Construction in 2020 - pending funding
Long Term - Downhill Trails
The ridge above town has 300m of elevation and it is our long term goal to develop it into a downhill trail system.
Downhill tracks will attract major visitation and are often used for competitive events.
These trails are located very close to town and would be a short ride from your backdoor.
Our trails master plan is complete and features this map of viable trail routes on this ridge. Our next step is to work with Rec Sites and Trails BC to secure tenure on this area so we can begin development of these trails.
TRMBA has secured $80,000 of $250,000 from NDIT and the Tumbler Ridge Forest for our paved pump track project. We are working hard to fundraise the remaining amount over the winter of 2019/2020.
2019 - Trail Master Plan
TRMBA is working with the Canadian Ramp Company on a Trail Master Plan for Tumbler Ridge. This project will provide trail mapping with estimated trail costs and more, and was fully funded by the District of Tumbler Ridge and will be complete in early 2020.
2019 & Beyond - Trail Development
TRMBA is hustling to apply for more grant funding for the development of downhill trails in Tumbler Ridge. TRMBA in partnership with the District have applied for a $500,000 Rural Dividend grant. Stay tuned for more trail development updates!
2019 Marketing - Website Launch
In 2019 TRMBA raised 50% of the funds for this website, while NDIT supported the other 50%. This project is important to TRMBA so visitors and locals can stay up to date on the latest biking news in Tumbler Ridge and our region. We hope you enjoy!
