Region's cycling enthusiasts may get glimpse of future plans for Prince Rupert area tonight

Mountain Bike enthusiasts in Prince Rupert hope to see a project  similar
to this one in Terrace put in place locally in the future

With Go By Bike week off to a somewhat soggy start, Prince Rupert's cycling community will want to make note of a guest at tonight's City Council Committee of the Whole Session, with Craig Rimmer from the North Coast Mountain Bike Association to deliver a presentation to Council.

The ambitious plans for the Association most likely will be the subject of tonights conversation with Council, including the plans of the Association to develop a Pump Track for the use of cycling enthusiast in the community, a project which as we noted in January would be similar in style to a course that has been created in the Terrace area.

The association launched their fundraising efforts at the start of the year and tonight will provide a chance for Mr. Rimmer to perhaps update council on how that is going and what the any course development plans may look like for Prince Rupert.

Later in the evening, Council will receive a report from Corporate Administrator Rosa Miller, which will ask for Council to provide a letter of Support for the North Coast Mountain Bike Association as they seek out further funding for the track proposal.

In February, we outlined some of the early investigative work on the track concept that had taken place, with the North Coast Mountain Bike Association picking up some valuable allies to their cause along the way.

Tonight's Committee of the Whole appearance is set for shortly after 7PM, you can watch the live stream from the City website here.

More notes on this evening's Council session can be explored here.
