Donation Matching helps North Shore Mountain Bike Association Build New Accessible Trail

Community update donation matching

The North Shore Mountain Bike Association (NSMBA) is a volunteer driven non-profit organization dedicated to caring for a sustainable trail network within the community. NSMBA is currently raising funds to create a fun, inclusive mountain bike experience for individuals who use adaptive mountain bikes (aMTBs). The loop will upgrade three existing trails on North Van’s Mount Seymour: Old Buck to Bridle Path, Bridle Path to Empress Bypass, and Empress Bypass descent. In addition to making it accessible to aMTBs, the improvements will also upgrade twinned sections including building a ‘hiking only’ section.

In keeping with our focus on initiatives that create a healthy, vibrant community for all who work here, Neptune Terminals has committed to matching the first $10,000 in donations contributed by the community to NSMBA for this project. “Neptune’s matching contribution was a fantastic call to action for the community and everyone has stepped up,” says Christine Reid, NSMBA’s executive director. “I am delighted to say that we’ve already raised $11,000 from community contributions.”

As the demand for adaptive outdoor recreation opportunities continues to grow, NSMBA wants to ensure the North Shore trails are accessible for all to enjoy.
