About

Vision

A paved path, separate from the highway, linking Telkwa, Smithers and rural areas, for the benefit and enjoyment of locals and tourists.

Board of Directors

 

 The Cycle 16 Board of Directors is a very cohesive team that brings a wide variety of expertise to the table. Backgrounds in engineering, road construction, municipal planning, fundraising, writing and reporting, contracting and general community involvement provide a diverse skillset well suited to the multi-use trail project. A great deal of energy and enthusiasm has been poured into the planning of the trail over the past five years. Excitement is ramping up as the prospect of having “shovel in the ground’ is nearing reality.

FAQ (?)

What do I get for my membership?
You add your voice to the project. The greater the membership numbers, the greater the opportunities to qualify for grants and to raise funds. A large membership also indicates the level of community support, which persuades governing bodies to move ahead on the project.

This is going to be a very expensive venture. Who will potentially use this trail?
Commuters will ride back & forth to work. People may use all of the trail or sections of the trail.  Recreational cyclists, roller bladers, elderly folks with walkers, people in wheelchairs, people in electric carts, people on electric bikes etc. Runners will run on it. Walkers will walk on it. Friends will visit on it. Parents will push their strollers on it. Cross-country skiiers will roller ski on it. Teachers will take their classes on it. Tourists will see it, stop and ride on it. Toddlers, tots, tweens, teens, adults, elderly, ANYONE and EVERYONE!

How long do you think that it will take to actually get the trail built?
Depends on membership support and how long it takes the working groups to complete tasks. Realistically we should be looking at about a 5 year time frame.

How wide will the trail be?
3 meters

How far off the highway will the trail be located?
9 meters off of the fog-line (the white line along the edge of the road)

What will the surface of the trail be?
pavement with a yellow center line

Who will maintain the trail?
That is yet to be determined
