Just because YOU don't think it's a great idea, doesn't make up for those who DO want it.

For that same year the bicycle tourism industry accounted for 44B euros ...

In 2014 Michigan logged $668MM in benefits to the economy from employment, retail revenue, tourism expenditure, and increased health and productivity ...

The $6MM estimation in the original report might be low ...

Money well spent ... can't wait to see what happens with the Trans-Canada Trail opening this year ...

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Good price. Good news. Good investment in the future. I talked to one native entrepreneur who wants to build a group of kekulis, upgraded of course with modern lining and fixtures, for rental on the course.

Everyone is ignoring the elephant in the room with regards to the current rail trail. The section between the airport and Lake Country along Duck Lake may never be completed compliments of the OIB. What families are going to allow their children to ride that stretch along Hwy. 97?

Meh, no one wants to bike south of Lake Country
The best part is around Oyama.

Rode from Kelowna to Coldstream today. Hopped the fence by the airport, a little overgrown but no cars. Will continue this unless they post a Chief at the gate. Looking at Strava many others are also ignoring the signage.
