MTBCo Hosts Fundraising BBQ

May 1st marks the second season opening of the Mission Creek Mountain Bike Skills Park. To kick off the season, Mountain Bikers of the Central Okanagan (MTBCo) will be hosting a fundraising BBQ. Enter the Jump Jam or play some family friendly games for chances to win free swag donated by our local bike shops.

The day begins at 10 am, and the BBQ starts at noon where an exemplary $5 donation will get you a burger, drink and snack. There will also be draw tickets on sale for chances to win additional prizes and all of the proceeds raised from this day will go towards the maintenance and development of the Bike Park for the enjoyment of our and future generations.

The newly rebuilt jump lines will once again showcase Kelowna’s many talented riders in an all-day jump jam.  The Jump Contest will be open to anyone who is an MTBco member, and we’ll be there early to sign people up.

Prizes are being donated by the following local shops:

  • Chain Line
  • Union Cycle
  • Outbound
  • Cyclepath
  • Sovereign Cycle
  • Fresh Air Experience

Located at 1960 Hollywood Road South, the park features a pump track and six dirt jump lanes progressing from beginner to expert. Ride on over or carpool if you can as parking on site is limited. Additional street parking may be available on Hollywood Rd South and Pasadena Rd. Please note however that it is not permitted on East Kelowna road, adjacent to the park. For more parking details, please visit their Facebook Page.

To prep the park for its 2011 debut, there will be a maintenance day today (Saturday April 30th). Work begins at 11am. Extra hands (and shovels!) are always appreciated, so come on down and do your community good!
