OCA and IMBA Announce Partnership
Mountain bike groups in Ontario will soon benefit from a new grant program dedicated to improving trails. The program is a partnership between the Ontario Cycling Association (OCA) and the International Mountain Bicycling Association's (IMBA) Canadian office. In 2005, a percentage of every full OCA Membership sold will go toward creating, maintaining and preserving trails across the province.
Three $500 grants will be awarded for trail improvement projects, and to encourage clubs to take a stewardship role in their local trails. Funds may be used for a variety of purposes, including the purchase of trailbuilding tools, the construction of trailhead kiosks, improved trail signage, and other trailbuilding materials. Projects that create or improve trails used for mountain bike racing will receive the highest consideration.
Clubs belonging to both the OCA and IMBA are invited to apply. The application deadline is June 1st, 2005 and the grants will be awarded in early July 2005.
