Beare Rd Landfill Bike Park
The third and final public consultation meeting regarding the proposed Beare Rd park is happening tomorrow. The plan shown at the last meeting showed about 1/3 of the property being mountain bike specific use, with space for long flow trails, jump lines and a skills park.
The meeting is at 6:30, at the Malvern Community Center, 30 Sewells Rd, in Scarborough. It would be nice to have a few more mountain bikers present for support.
Bumped for any east enders who can make it.
Thanks Nick. Unfortunately can't as I'm not at my second home oops I mean my mother in laws this week.
For any who are not aware...as I learned from JMurray almost 2 years ago. The bike park proposal for Beare Landfill is not part of the Rouge National Park.

Friend's of The Rouge my natural white arse. Nothing then the same regurgitated ban anything we don't like dogma from 20 years ago. Thankfully this thinking of the old fogey's is being replaced by what I heard at the National Park.
some words of advice, be a little less concerned of this group as they are not the land managers for the rouge but just stakeholders.

have a clear and concise plan with supporting documents (maps,current/proposed mtb trails, trail construction methods, etc) that you can present to committee meetings. oh and attend the meetings, more the better. you will then get to know the other committee members (councillors, etc).
and lastly be polite and respectful at the meetings. listen to what the others have to say. support the experience that they want. be vocal about this. then present the experience you want and ask for their advice and support. be firm about this yet open to compromise.
