CRD Mountain Biking Advisory Committee Looking for Volunteer Members

Jun 10, 2020

Victoria, BC– The Capital Regional District (CRD) is accepting expressions of interest for volunteer members of the Mountain Biking Advisory Committee (MBAC). The Advisory Committee will include 11 members with 4 spaces available for individual members of the public: 2 members to be appointed that can represent outdoor recreational interests outside the mountain biking community and 2 members to be appointed that can represent conservation/naturalist interests. Please note additional representatives from the CRD Regional Parks Committee, mountain biking community groups and a First Nations representative will be included by invitation.

The purpose of the MBAC is to bring together a group of people with interest in recreation in the capital region and a knowledge of the regional park system in order to provide advice and for use in developing mountain biking guidelines for CRD Regional Parks.

The CRD Regional Parks mountain biking guidelines will assist with the planning of sustainable mountain biking activities within regional parks, giving consideration to all regional park values.

The MBAC is an advisory committee and therefore does not have decision-making powers. The MBAC will formulate recommendations to present to the CRD Regional Parks Committee and will serve until the final mountain biking guidelines are approved by the Board.
